Birdies For Charity

Support Safer Foundation in the Quad Cities

Each year Safer’s Quad Cities location participates in the John Deere Classic Birdies for Charities Program. You can choose to pledge a flat amount or guess the number of birdies you think will be made during the John Deere Classic Tournament, held July 10-16, 2017. One hundred percent of every pledge collected goes directly to Safer Foundation in the Quad Cities. Plus, the tournament takes its profits each year and delivers a second check from between 5 percent and 10 percent of the charity’s final total to make the deal even sweeter. This year, all charities will be guaranteed a 5 percent bonus on amounts up to their prior year pledge total, or $100,000, whichever is greater.
