Birdies for Charity

If you’re interested in supporting Special Olympics Virginia through the Birdies for Charity program, please click here.

The Dominion Energy Charity Classic, a PGA TOUR Champions event held at The Country Club of Virginia, James River Course in October, is focused on making a positive impact within the Richmond community. Birdies for Charity presented by TowneBank is a free fundraising platform designed to give local non-profits the opportunity to generate contributions through flat donations or based on the number of “birdies” (one stroke under par) made by PGA TOUR Champions players during the Dominion Energy Charity Classic, which will be matched by 10%.

PGA TOUR Champions players made 789 birdies at the last year’s tournament. So, as an example, if you donated $0.10 per birdie in 2017 your total donation would have equaled $78.90, to which the PGA TOUR adds the additional 10% bonus.

If you would like to make your donation by check, please make your check out to PGA TOUR Charities Inc. and write Special Olympics Virginia in the memo line. Please mail the check to the following address:
