Donors gave $100,131, an increase of about 20 percent over last year, to the student missions program at Palm Beach Atlantic University through the Birdies for Children program, a partnership with The Honda Classic golf tournament.
Birdies for Children raises money for charities, which receive 100 percent of the proceeds donated online plus a 10 percent matching donation courtesy of The Honda Classic. This year’s match is estimated to be $10,013 in addition to the amount raised.
Last year, PBA donors contributed $83,108, earning a matching donation of $8,310 and a total of $91,419. This is the fourth year in which PBA has participated in Birdies for Children.
The money is used to send students on projects around the world.
