Honda Classic's 'Birdies for Children' Aids Student Missions

Palm Beach Atlantic University students volunteer with refugees in Malta. Palm Beach Atlantic University (PBA) is a private, accredited, Christ-centered college located in West Palm Beach, Florida, USA.The student missions program at Palm Beach Atlantic University has raised more than $25,000 so far through Birdies for Children, a partnership with The Honda Classic.

The Birdies for Children program allows participating charities to receive 100 percent of the proceeds donated through a special hyperlink plus a 10 percent matching donation courtesy of the Honda Classic. PBA presently is in second place among the top fund-raising charities.

The last day to give is Feb. 27. For every $20 given, donors can enter a contest to win a brand new 2013 Honda Insight by guessing how many birdies will be made at The Honda Classic.

Last year, the student missions program at Palm Beach Atlantic University raised a total of $92,418 through Birdies for Children. The donations support Campus Ministries, which is sponsoring global projects in places such as Africa, Southeastern Europe, Asia, South America and the Caribbean.

The Honda Classic takes place Feb. 25-March 3 at PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens.
