The Principal Charity Classic is a wonderful community event and contributes greatly to the economic vitality and quality of life in central Iowa.
Through this event, the Birdies for Charity program is a fundraising vehicle through which participating organizations, including Children & Families of Iowa, can solicit pledges from supporters.
Participants can make a one-time donation, or a pledge of $.05 or more for each birdie made by Champions Tour players during the 2017 Principal Charity Classic. In addition, Sammons Financial Group will match all collected donations by 10 percent.
What is a Birdie?
In golf, a “birdie” is a score of one stroke better than “par” for any golf hole on the golf course. “Par” is the normal expected score of a golf professional on any given hole.
