Swing Your Birdie Golf Classic

35th Annual “Birdie” - Friday, July 26, 2013

This five-person, best shot tournament is recognized as the longest-running charity golf fundraiser in Rochester. All proceeds benefit the children and families staying at the Ronald McDonald House of Rochester, Minnesota.

The 35th annual Swing Your Birdie Golf Classic was held at Willow Creek Golf Course on Friday, July 26th.   In this milestone year, the event remembered two Emeritus Trustees, Kak Johnson (also one of the Birdie’s founders), and Phil Henoch. The “Birdie” held a very special place in their hearts and we honor their countless contributions throughout the years.  A very special thank you to the golfers, volunteers, and sponsors.

This year’s sold-out event raised nearly $42,000!
