Another successful year for the John Deere Classic’s Birdies for Charity program.

This year’s tournament helped raise a record $13,819,154 for 542 local and regional charities.

That’s an increase of 7.25 percent over last.

Today two lucky charities also received an extra $1,000.

They say these funds will go a long way.

Since it began in 1971, the John Deere Classic has raised more than $120 million for charity.
