Birdies for Kids Presented by AltaLinkBirdies-for-Kids-

Until September 2017, there is a great opportunity to have your donation matched! Birdies for Kids is a fundraising program designed to give charities a chance to generate contributions through flat donations or based on the number of “birdies” made by Champions Tour players during the Shaw Charity Classic. Sonshine will receive 100% of EVERY DONATION collected and up to 50% in matching funds. Through Birdies for Kids, Sonshine raised almost $60,000 in 2016! Our goal is to surpass $60,000 in 2017.  All funds will be directed to Sonshine’s Children Centre.
