John Deere Classic Golf Tournament ~ Birdies For Charity

Birdies For Charity!

The HSCI is again partnering with John Deere's Classic Golf Tournament fundraiser to raise money for pets at the Pet Adoption Center.

No GOLF knowledge is needed!  Just guess the number of Birdies.

We'll have to see if any of our supporters are lucky enough to guess the correct number of birdies to win a Two Year Lease on a 2019 Lexus NX, courtesy of Lexus of the Quad Cities.

Only 1 grand prize awarded. Ties and other prizes determined by random drawing. Judges' decision is final.

All money collected through pledge forms comes back to the Humane Society of Central Illinois, plus additional money is provided by John DeereDetails & Pledge Form

Please pledge a penny or more per birdie!  If 2,000 birdies are made, your total pledge would be:

Grand Prize!
1¢  =  $20 2¢  =  $40 3¢  =  $60 4¢  =  $80 5¢  =  $100 10¢  =  $200

To assist you, here is a history of past birdies scored:

1,914  (2009) 2,160  (2011) 2,142  (2013) 1,990  (2015) 1,918  (2017)

No money due now!  John Deere will send an invoice to you after the tournament based on the number of birdies and your pledge.

The 2019 John Deere Classic will take place July 8 - 14, 2019.
