Birdies for Charity

Here's an easy way to help the Arizona Asthma Coalition!  The 2015 Waste Management Phoenix Open promises to be the best golf tournament in the event's history.  Some of the biggest names on the PGA Tour will be competing for first place.

You're invited to be a part of the action through the Birdies for Charity Program.  A "birdie" is one stroke under Par for any golf hole on the course.  Based on prior tournaments, it is assumed that the golfers will  about 1,500 birdies during this event from Jan. 26 to Feb. 1, 2015.  Even though you may not be a golfer, by participating you can support the Arizona Asthma Coalition. 

If you make a pledge of just a penny for every birdie, your pledge would amount to $15.00.  If you pledge two cents per birdie, it would be $30.00.  A pledge of ten cents becomes $150.  You get the idea!  The pledge deadline is February 1st.

Who receives your pledge?  Well, we do - the Arizona Asthma Coalition.  The Waste Management Open and Thunderbird Charities are giving our organization the opportunity to earn funds from this fun promotion and we get every cent collected.  As an added bonus, the program will match 10% above the total we collect.  So if we collect $10,000, that's and extra $1,000 for us.  We must collect at least $500 in pledges and donations to qualify, so please make your pledge online today. After the Tournament, Thunderbird Charities will bill you for the amount of your pledge.

There are two ways to pledge:
* complete the attached form and send it to
* go to, choose "Make a Pledge"  and select the AZ Asthma Coalition, #215 

If you have questions, please contact me at Please help our cause!  More than ever, we need your support.
