The H.E.A.R.T. Program is participating in the 2021 Houston Open Birdies for Charity® Program!
What is Birdies for Charity®?
The Birdies for Charity®, presented by THINK Neurology for Kids is a fundraising program is to give local charities (i.e. H.E.A.R.T.) the opportunity to generate contributions through the Houston Open by soliciting and collecting pledges of one cent or more from the general public and/or corporate donors for every “Birdie” (meaning a score of one stroke less than the declared par of any given hole at a golf course) made by the PGA TOUR players during the Houston Open, November 8-14, 2021.
The Houston Open administers the program, invoices all donors and turns over 100% of all funds collected to each designated charity. The fundraising campaign will launch Wednesday, July 14, 2021 and conclude November 14, 2021. The Houston Open will award the top fifteen charities with the highest total of donations and four randomly drawn charities with an additional bonus.
There are two ways to donate to H.E.A.R.T. via the Birdies for Charity program:
