Colonial’s Birdies for Charity raises over $14M for local nonprofits

The Star-Telegram reported that Colonial Country Club’s annual Birdies for Charity fundraising campaign raised more than $14 million in 2018 for dozens of local nonprofit organizations.

“It is with great pride that we were able to support such important charity work in the Tarrant County area,” said Rob Hood, chairman of the Colonial Tournament, in a press release. “This was a big reason why the Fort Worth community came together this year to keep our tournament going. This component of our event cannot be overstated.”

The local charities gathered last week for a luncheon to find out the final amount raised, and to receive checks for their portion.
