SAYS has been chosen to be a recipient of funds raised from The Players Championship Birdies for Charity program. In the days and weeks leading up to the tournament, fans are invited to guess the total number of birdies that will be made during The Players, and select the charity they would like their pledges to benefit. We are hoping friends of SAYS will pledge enough through the program to help us raise $3,000.00
Birdies for Charity annually leads up to The Players and allows the community to support local charities through tracking the exciting, high-level of play during the tournament, which will take place May 3-9, 2010.
In 2009, 1,502 birdies were made during the four-day event. Over $216,000 was raised last year through Birdies for Charity, part of the record $4.15 million generated by The Players.
In addition to supporting SAYS, the lucky person who guesses exactly how many birdies are made during the tournament’s competitive rounds will win an all-expense paid trip to The Barclays, the kickoff event of the PGA Tour Playoffs for the FedEx Cup in Paramus, NJ, in August. The package includes roundtrip airfare for two, four nights’ accommodations, and VIP tickets for the tournament.
