You can play “Birdies for Charity” for The Arc of Katy

The Arc of Katy is participating in the Houston Open Birdies for Charity, a fund-raising program designed to give local charities the opportunity to generate contributions through the Houston Open.

The Houston Open will award the top three donation-collecting charities and one randomly drawn charity a bonus donation. 100 % of donations designated to The Arc of Katy will be distributed to us from the Houston Open. In 2019, the Houston Open distributed $615,000 to local nonprofits.

To donate to Birdies for Charity, make a pledge of one cent or more for every “Birdie” made by the PGA Tour Pros during the Houston Open. If 1,500 birdies are made during the 2020 event, donations will range from $15.00 for a 1 cent per birdie pledge to $1,500 for a $1.00 per birdie pledge. The minimum birdie pledge is $.01 and the maximum per birdie pledge is $1.00.

Another option, is for people to make a flat donation not tied to birdies. The minimum donation is $20.

Pledges can be made now through Sunday, Nov. 8, 2020. Last year, 1,244 birdies were made at the Houston Open. The event is being held at a new course this year.

Grand prize: All people who donate or pledge are eligible to enter the “Guess the Birdie” contest. Guess the total number of birdies that will be made by PGA Tour Pros during the Houston Open, Nov. 2-8, 2020. One grand prize will be given to the person who guesses the correct number. In case of ties, winners will be randomly selected. One lucky supporter of the Houston Open Birdies for Charity program will win an Astros “Suite Night at Minute Made Park” in 2021.
