Birdies For Charity® is a program that raises funds through the Houston Open. In addition to funds, the top 6 charities and 2 lucky charities will be drawn at random will receive a booth for a day in 2022 at the Houston Open during tournament week.
100% of donations made on behalf of Fort Bend Seniors through the program will go directly to the charity. Through November 11, there are two types of donations:
- Pledge one cent or more for every birdie made during the Houston Open. The minimum birdie pledge is 1¢ and the maximum pledge is $1.00. (In 2019, 1,244 birdies were made and in 2020 1,221 were made.)
EXAMPLE: If 1,500 birdies are made during the 2021 event:
- 1¢ pledge per birdie = $15 total donation
- 10¢ pledge per birdie = $150 total donation
- $1.00 pledge birdie = $1,500 total donation
- Make a flat donation not tied to Birdies. The flat donation minimum is $20.
