Butterfield Bermuda Championship raises more than $1.1m for charity

Charity at heart of Butterfield Bermuda Championship

The 2023 Butterfield Bermuda Championship helped to generate more than $1.1 million in charitable impact.

The figure was achieved through a combination of different initiatives, including the Butterfield Bermuda Championship Birdies for Charity, the BF&M Volunteer Programme, the Butterfield Bermuda Junior Championship and the Butterfield Bermuda APGA Championship

Tournament director Danielle Carrera is thrilled that the PGA Tour was able to have a significant financial impact on thr local community.

“We are thrilled to once again report our tournament has had a charitable impact in excess of $1.1 million for Bermuda,” Carrera said.

“This brings our total to over $3.2 million during the lifespan of the event. Due to a generous donation from Mastercard, we were able to increase our match to participating charities within the Birdies for Charity program to 12 percent, providing further impact. We are eager to welcome more Bermuda charities to benefit from this programme for the 2024 tournament.”

The Butterfield Bermuda Championship Birdies for Charity helped more than 30 entities earn additional dollars in the six months between July and November, with a number of charities succeeding in raising the maximum amount of $50,000 through the programme. Matching funds were made possible by Butterfield, Bermuda Tourism Authority, Mastercard, Digicel Business, AXA XL, The Hamilton Princess and Beach Club, Somerset Re, SFG Bermuda, BF&M, and Island Construction.

The BF&M Volunteer Programme, which enables the tournament's near 600 volunteers to donate their time to the charity of their choice, helped to raise more than $63,000 .

Warwick Academy was awarded $5,000 after student Annabelle Shah’s design featured on the junior ticket in 2023.

The balance of charitable dollars will be donated to the growth of junior golf in Bermuda through programmes that the event is actively working with in partnership with the Bermuda Golf Association.
