Over 400 Thousand Dollars awarded to Local Charities at Birdies for Charity Celebration
The Rapiscan Systems Classic and the Gulf Coast Community Foundation awarded more than 440 thousand dollars to local charities.
It was the Birdies for Charity Check Celebration.
Twenty charities were represented and thirteen of them received money during yesterday’s celebration. The actual tournament was in March, but the different organizations got to see the fruits of their labor.
Also during the event was a drawing for an additional 500 dollar donation awarded to the Ohr O’Keefe Museum. Birdies for Charity golf tournament director Stephen Schoettmer says it’s just an awesome feeling giving back to the community in this way.
