BIRDIES FOR CHARITY
Birdies for Charity is a fun and easy way to support the work of the Autism Society of the Quad Cities.

We will use "Birdies" proceeds to offer scholarship assistance to persons on the spectrum.

To participate, simply pledge one cent or more per birdie made in the John Deere Classic. A pledge of $.01 per birdie typically equals about $20; $.05 equals $100. You also can make a one-time flat donation.

To enter the contest, guess the number of birdies that actually will be made by PGA Tour Pros during the tournament on July 6-12. A pledge makes you eligible to win more than 100 great prizes. All those who guess the exact number of birdies will be entered in a drawing for a two-year lease on a Lexus NX.

The John Deere Classic also guarantees a 5 percent bonus on total gifts and pledges made to a charity. This bonus has been 10 percent in the past two years.

To make a Birdies for Charity gift to Autism Society of the Quad Cities note the organization's name and number 1501 on the birdies pledge form. You can secure a form from Gary Rowe at gnrowe47@gmail.com, or (309)948-3403.
