Valspar Championship - Birdies for Tampa Bay Charities

Posted on February 21, 2018

Birdies for Metro!

This year, Metropolitan Ministries will benefit from the Birdies for Tampa Bay Charities. The PGA Valspar Championship is being held at Innisbrook, a Salamander Golf & Spa Resort in Palm Harbor on March 8-11th.

When you pledge 1 cent or more for each birdie made during the 2018 Championship, Birdies for Tampa Bay will then donate 100% of the money received to the charity named by the donor on the pledge card. 

  • Birdies for Tampa Bay Charities obtain pledges of 1 cent or more for each birdie made during the 2018 Championship. 
  • Birdies for Tampa Bay will then donate 100% of the money received to Metropolitan Ministries as named on the pledge card.
  • We can also qualify for additional money through the bonus pool. 
  • The Bonus Pool Guarantees a 15% Bonus on the 1.5 million in paid pledges
  • Along with a pledge, each donor will be able to guess the number of birdies made during the tournament and also win a prize.

Last year, 1256 birdies were made during the 2017 tournament.

Based on 1000 birdies if you pledge...

1c = $10.00     2c = $20.00

5c = $50.00     10c = $100.00

25c = $250.00

Here is what to do:

1. Please print this form and include it with your pledge or a one-time donation.

2. Send check payable to Valspar Championship.
