NormaLeah is a proud participant in this program. A huge THANK YOU to our supporters for helping to raise funds to keep our programs – and those of many other non-profits – up and running! On Friday, October 30th, 2020, the John Deere Classic announced it raised $12.2 million through Birdies for Charity. That means the JDC has helped raise more than $132 million for charity since the tournament began in 1971. This money will be distributed among 465 charities. John Deere Classic tournament director Clair Peterson said this amount was “thanks to the incredible ongoing generosity of individuals, companies and family foundations.”
