About Birdies For Charity: a unique, community-based fundraising initiative held in conjunction with THE PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass, May 6-12, 2013. With your donation you have the option to guess the total number of birdies that will be made during the competition rounds of the tournament. The individual making the correct or closest guess will win $5,000!
If you choose correctly, World Arts Education, the non-profit presenting the World Arts Film Festival, will also receive an additional $5,000 from THE PLAYERS Championship! Thank you everyone, we hope you WIN!
The PLAYERS Championship event is right after our festival, so this is a super way to raise more funding for our children's programs. Good Luck on your guess! Make a guess every time you donate $20 or above right here. Be sure to answer the Birdies question and the Tiebreaker when you donate and your guess will be automatically entered and recorded. If you go directly to the Birdies For Charity website, just make sure to enter World Arts Education as your designated charitable organization. Either way your Festival Birdies Badge will be waiting for you at our WILL CALL desk.
