Please Support SLW Birdies for Charity

Categories: More News

Dear Friends,

By now you should have received a pledge form for the John Deere Classic Birdies for Charity fundraiser in which we are participating.  This is replacing our Grand Raffle.

Please refer to to make your SLW John Deere Classic donation online with a credit card.

If you need a pledge form please click here. 

If you are possibly interested in being a tournament sponsor please click here.

Please note that forms will appear sidewise but you will be able to print it.

Other helpful details follow:

Simply fill out a pledge card with your contact information and pledge amount.  Pledges need to be at least $0.01/birdies or a one-time flat donation of any amount. You will also be able to guess the number of birdies recorded during Wed-Sun of the John Deere Classic for your chance to win a 2-year lease on a 2018 Lexus NX car or other prizes.

After the tournament, you will be invoiced based on the number of Birdies recorded, not the number you guessed.

For example, if you pledge $0.01 per Birdies and 2,000 Birdies are recorded, you will be billed for $20.00.

Individuals who guess the correct number of Birdies will automatically have the chance to win a 2-year lease on a 2018 Lexus NX.  A blind drawing reduces the number of correct guessing donors to five – with the final five having the chance to turn an ignition key themselves at a live event.  One key starts the car.  Other great prizes are randomly assigned and include a John Deere riding lawn mower, John Deere Classic Tee Marker and more.

Be sure to send your pledge form to Birdies for Charity, 15623 Coaltown Rd., East Moline, IL 61244.

All forms have the Sisters of the Living Word listed as the Charity along with our Birdie number 2153.  John Deere will match up to 10% of donations received on behalf of the SLW.

Thank you for your interest and support of this fundraiser that will benefit our mission and ministries!
