"Birdies for Charity" supporting Community Cupboard

Posted on Monday, May 13, 2013 at 11:05 AM

Each summer a famous golf tournament comes to Waterloo, and this year the Community Cupboard will benefit.CC logo

How?  “Birdies for Charity” is a program run in connection with the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic to support local charities.  This year our Community Cupboard is one of them.  Manulife Financial provides the rewards (read on!) and a simple way for donors to give—and the Community Cupboard receives 100% of donations collected for it.  All donations will receive a tax receipt.

How Can I Participate?

  • Make a pledge.  Donors can pledge $0.02 or more “per birdie” to the Community Cupboard.  (A birdie is when the golfer makes a hole with one stroke fewer than “par” for that hole.)  When the tournament is over, all the birdies made by all the golfers will be added up.  Last year there were about 1,400 birdies.  So, for example, a pledge of $0.02 per birdie would mean a donation of around $28.

Want a free pass to a day at the tournament?  Be one of the first 25 people to pledge at least $0.07 per birdie to the Community Cupboard, and we’ll offer you one!  Thanks, Manulife!  The tournament runs July 10-14, 2013 at the Grey Silo Golf Course in Waterloo.

Cost for the weekend, including all meals, is $40.

Dave Horn Benefit Concert: Sunday, April 14th 2013 at 7 p.m. at Historic St. Paul's Lutheran Church (137 Queen St. S. Kitchener). All proceeds from a free-will offering go to the Community Cupboard.

A wonderfully gifted musician and entertainer, this Lutheran pastor, singer/songwriter, and fingerstyle guitarist has toured North America since 2000 bringing laughter and encouragement to people of all ages.Fix Our Eyes album cover

Come hear what one listener described as “dirt-level” songs about real life and the God who cares. 

Sample the music—three albums and another in progress—here.
