***** 2020 John Deere Classic Birdies for Charity *****

The JDC Birdies for Charity program is an impressive fundraising opportunity available to area nonprofits, and the Clinton Symphony Board would like to invite those interested in supporting the Symphony to make a donation pledge through the 2020 John Deere Classic Birdies for Charity program – unfortunately the tournament itself has been cancelled, however, the Birdies program will continue.  For this year, as paper forms are not available, participation is online or via mail.  Note that all pledges are guaranteed a 5% bonus to the Symphony from the Birdies for Charity Bonus Fund, increasing the impact of your donation!  

Thank you for your consideration, and for your support of the Symphony.  

—  Bill Zickau, President
