Birdies for Charity 2016

BCMG Logo Transparent

Dear Fellow Master Gardener,

Bexar County Master Gardeners are again participating in Birdies for Charity (our only fund-raising program) through the Valero Texas Open Golf Tournament!

The Texas Valero Open runs from April 18 – 24, 2016 at the beautiful AT&T Oaks Course of the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa.

If you correctly guess the number of “birdies” made during the tournament, you could win a 3-night Stay and Play Gift Package at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa! All donors have a chance to win a two-year lease on a brand-new Ford vehicle.

For instance, during last year’s tournament 2,103 birdies were made by the professional golfers. If you pledged $0.01 for each birdie, your donation would amount to $21.03 – all of which goes directly to the Bexar County Master Gardeners – and is tax deductible. No money is taken out for administrative overhead, prizes or anything else.

This is a grand opportunity to make the Bexar County Master Gardeners even better. All of the money raised will be used to fund the many Master Gardener programs that we volunteer in throughout the year. You can make a real difference in how broadly the Master Gardeners impact our San Antonio Community.

Please take a moment and make a Donation Online

Do so now – you truly can make a difference!Birdies

Thanks for your support,
