Support Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas through the 2013 Birdies for Charity program®
In 2013, GSSWT is poised to succeed with its partnership with Birdies for Charity through the annual Valero Texas Open and your help is needed to spread the word! What's a birdie, you ask?! It's a score of one stroke under par (the expected score) for any hole on the golf course.
Birdies for Charity is a fundraising program designed to give participating organizations the opportunity to generate contributions through the Valero Texas Open, scheduled for April 1-7. All donations and pledges are tax deductible and GSSWT will receive 100 percent of the dollars raised through Birdies for Charity!
GSSWT's goal is to be part of the Top 52 participating organizations, which will qualify us for additional funding opportunities. To meet the objective, pledges must be submitted by 12 noon on Tuesday, March 5.
It's easy to participate!
- Stop by GSSWT's Shop (at the Sally Cheever Girl Scout Leadership Center) and buy a birdie to fill the tree for just $2 each, or buy a golden birdie for $5 each!
- Make a pledge of one penny or more for every birdie made during the 2013 Valero Texas Open. In 2012, a pledge for one penny per birdie equaled $20.22.
- Make a flat contribution of $20 or more.
Guess the Birdies Contest
For a little added excitement, you can participate in the Guess the Birdies Contest. If you correctly guess the number of birdies made during the tournament, you could win a brand-new car! Deadline for guesses is 12 noon on Monday, April 1.
Birdies Club Member
You may also want to consider becoming a Birdies Club member. A Birdies Club member is any person or business that pledges 50¢ or more per birdie or a straight donation of $1,000 or more. In recognition of this level of giving, Birdies Club members will be recognized on site on a Birdies Club member sign and will receive four Good Any One Day tickets to the tournament (April 4-7).
To support GSSWT through Birdies for Charity, simply make an online pledge and designate your donation to Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas. You may download a pledge form here and deliver it to the Sally Cheever Girl Scout Leadership Center (811 N. Coker Loop, San Antonio, Texas 78216) or stop by the leadership center and complete a form at your convenience.
