There were 2,904 birdies made
at the 2018 Valero Texas Open!
The Southern Texas PGA Foundation invites you to support us through Birdies for Charity®, an exciting fundraising program linked to the Valero Texas Open, the 3rd oldest tournament on the PGA TOUR schedule.
HOW THE SOUTHERN TEXAS PGA FOUNDATION WILL BENEFIT
We will receive 100% of every penny we raise through Birdies for Charity. Valero Texas Open and Birdies for Charity pay all costs associated with running the program. All funds raised will support the Southern Texas PGA Junior Golf programs. Depending on how well we do, we can earn additional “Bonus Money” provided by the Valero Texas Open. They provide a 7% match to make your donation grow even further!
HOW BIRDIES FOR CHARITY WORKS
Make a donation using the pledge form here. Friends, family and even your company can also contribute using the same method.
Any individual or business that donates $1,000+ becomes a member of the Birdies Club and will receive four (4) Good Any One Day general admission tickets to the tournament emailed to you through Ticketmaster. In addition, you will be recognized on a sponsor sign displayed at the Donation Stations located at both the main and VIP spectator entrances during tournament week, April 4-7, 2019.
So please support the Southern Texas PGA Foundation through Birdies for Charity by returning your completed pledge form to our office or by making an online pledge here. After the tournament, Valero Texas Open will bill you for the amount of your commitment. If you want to pay now, you can do so with cash, credit card or making your check out to Birdies for Charity
"GUESS THE BIRDIES" AND A STAY-AND-PLAY PACKAGE COULD BE YOURS
To add sizzle to the program, you can guess how many birdies will be made during the Valero Texas Open. If your guess is correct, you could win a Stay-and Play Package to JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country and TPC San Antonio. In the event of a tie, a tie-breaker event will determine the winner. If no one guesses correctly, the computer will randomly select a winner and it may just pick your name! Contest entry deadline is Monday, April 1, 2019.
ATTEND THE VALERO TEXAS OPEN TO HELP US WIN $20,000
All donors from the Birdies for Charity program that attend the Valero Texas Open and check-in at the Donation Station (located in Gatorade Fan Fest) will automatically be entered into a drawing. If your name is drawn as the winner, the Southern Texas PGA Foundation will win $20,000! If you attend all four days, you get four entries. If you help us win the $20,000 donation, you will also receive a cool prize from the Valero Texas Open!
HOW YOU WILL MAKE AN IMPACT
The Southern Texas PGA Foundation introduces and provides youth in Southern Texas broad opportunities to experience the game of golf, develop their talent as players and themselves as individuals, and promote scholarship benefits to as many qualified candidates as possible.

The Will Erwin Headache Research Foundation hosted the fourth annual “The Will” to Cure Headaches Golf Tournament on October 15, 2018, at The Club at Carlton Woods. The tournament, which featured over 130 golfers ranging from Southern Texas PGA Professionals to sponsors across all industries and invited guests, came together to raise over $250,000 in support of The Foundation. In its four year existence, The Will has raised over $1,000,000.
The Will Erwin Headache Research Foundation, named after the late son of Jimmy and Pam Erwin, who ended his life after suffering for years with debilitating headaches, is making tremendous strides in creating awareness and raising funds for dedicated research. This research is focused on finding a cure for debilitating headaches, a condition that impacts 12% of the American population.
