Birdie-A-Thon raises $1,450 for local charities

By Staff | Mar 24, 2010

The 2010 Southwest Chapter PGA Birdie-A-Thon was played at The Dunes on March 18. The team of PGA Members Sean Balliet, Matt Oakley, Cathe Ransavage, Steve Pinger and South Seas’ Tom Hensel managed 29 under par in 36 holes.

The event raised $1,450 for several local charities including Southwest Florida Junior Golf and the 1st Tee of Naples/Collier Junior Golf, the Florida Gulf Coast University men’s and women’s golf program and other PGA affiliated charities.

Thank you to everyone that made donations. Please drop your payment by The Dunes by Wednesday, March 31. Checks or cash are accepted as payments. Please make checks payable to “South Florida PGA Foundation.” The amount for each person is on the board in the Golf Shop at The Dunes or $29 x your donation amount per birdie. (If you pledged $2, it comes to $58.)

The top donators already signed up will be taken to Pelican Preserve on Monday, April 5 for the 30th Annual Tournament of Charities Scramble with Brad Hicks.
