Birdies for Charity Information

Birdies for Charity is like a walk-a-thon, but instead of donating per mile, donors make a pledge for every birdie made at the Valero Texas Open. In 2016, the Valero Texas Open had 1,834 birdies and in 2017, the Valero Texas Open had 1,975 birdies, the Valero Texas Open had 2,904 birdies and in 2018.  
 

Donors also have the ability to make a one-time donation and flexibility to pay in advance or to be billed after the tournament. The average donation is $20 but any amount is welcome! Donations are accepted from anywhere around the world and are tax deductible.
