Make a pledge for each birdie made by Champions Tour Players and support Albertans with disabilities and medical conditions.

Easter Seals Alberta is proud to be a part of the Shaw Charity Classic- Birdies for Kids! Birdies for Kids presented by AltaLink is a fundraising program designed to give charities an opportunity to generate contributions through flat donations or based on the number of "birdies" made by Champions Tour players during the Shaw Charity Classic, August 29 - September 3, 2017. 

You can pledge per birdie or you can make a flat donation, and all donations are matched!

(Donation cut-off date Sunday, September 3, 2017 at 11:59:59 PM MT.)

How does it work?

Donors can either make a one-time flat donation or a pledge for each birdie made by Champions Tour players during the 2017 Shaw Charity Classic. Donations can be made up until Sunday August 4, 2016 at 11:59:59 PM MT.

What is a Birdie?

In golf, a ‘birdie’ is a score of one stroke better than ‘par’ for any golf hole on the course. ‘Par’ is the expected score of a golf professional on any given hole. For example, on a par 4, a score of 3 is a birdie. In 2013, there were 1,000 birdies at the Shaw Charity Classic, and in 2014 there were 892. We estimate 875 birdies will be made during the 2017 Shaw Charity Classic.

Matching Program

The most exciting part of the program comes together from various corporate supporters with AltaLink being the Founding Partner. Every dollar raised by an Easter Seals donation will be matched up to 50%. Easter Seals Alberta will receive 100% of every donation collected on our behalf, as the Shaw Charity Classic tournament will cover all administrative and program expenses.
