Birdies for Charity

The Iowa State Fair Blue Ribbon Foundation is partnering with The Principal Charity Classic's "Birdies for Charity" fundraiser! Supporters can make a pledge based on the number of "birdies" made by Champions Tour players during the 2018 Principal Charity Classic, June 5 - June 10.
The Blue Ribbon Foundation will receive 100% of every donation collected and receive a 10% match for all pledges made through the program. For more information about Birdies for Charity and to pledge visit The Principal Charity Classic website.
Donate online or fill out the Donor Form to join the Blue Ribbon Foundation as we raise funds to help preserve and improve the Iowa State Fairgrounds.

How does Birdies for Charity work? 

Every birdie made during the Principal Charity Classic means bucks for charity! There are two ways to pledge: A per-birdie amount for every birdie made by the Champions Tour players during the three-day Principal Charity Classic, or a one-time flat donation.

  • Minimum per-birdie $.05
  • Minimum flat donation $25.00
  • Birdies made in 2017:  821

For example, a pledge of $.05 per birdie: $.05 x 821 birdies in 2017 =$41.05

What is a Birdie? A "birdie" is a score of one stroke better than "par" for any golf hole on the course. "Par" is the normal expected score of a golf professional on any given hole. For example, on a par 4 hole, a score of 3 is a birdie.
