Welcome to 2018 colonial week! this is your official one-stop location for all participant and volunteer opportunities available throughout the week.
birdies for charity
The Birdies for Charity program is an opportunity for charitable organizations, like The First Tee of Fort Worth, to utilize the awareness and magnitude of a PGA TOUR event to further their fundraising initiatives. The program generated over $12 million for Tarrant County charities in 2017, recognized as one of the top Birdies for Charity programs on the PGA TOUR.
The concept is simple: Individuals and corporations pledge an amount for every birdie made during the FORT WORTH Invitational Tournament. In 2017, 1,134 birdies were recorded during the tournament. As a bonus, charities have the opportunity to earn additional contributions from our Matching Fund. The Matching Fund is distributed based on a pro-rata basis of total pledges collected. In 2017, the total Matching Fund exceeded $200,000 thanks to the generous support of our Lead Sponsors and Colonial Country Club.
