Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Florida partners with THE PLAYERS Championship to raise funds through the Birdies for Charity program



Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Florida is pleased to be participating in the 2012 PLAYERS Championship Birdies for
Charity program. This unique community-based fundraising initiative is held in conjunction with THE PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass, May 7-13, 2012.

We encourage you to visit www.birdiesforcharity.playerschampionship.com, where you will have the opportunity to make a donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Florida AND to become eligible to win a fabulous grand prize! Upon making your donation, you will be asked to guess the total number of birdies that will be made during the competition rounds of the tournament.

The individual who guesses the exact number of birdies made (or closet thereto) at the 2012 PLAYERS will win $5,000. In addition, the charity that the individual supports with their entry, will receive an additional $5,000 bonus.  In the event of a tie, a tie-breaker question will be used to determine the winner. Deadline for all entries is Wednesday, May 9.

In 2011, 1,607 birdies were made during the four competition rounds. Funds generated through the Birdies for Charity program were part of the record $5.9 million generated by THE PLAYERS.
