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.
