Guess the Birdies & Support the Friends of the Library

hcfolThe 2014 Shell Houston Open will be held on March 31- April 6, 2014 and the Harris County Friends of the Library will be raising funds through Birdies for Charity .  How is the money used?  The Friends help pay for the summer reading activities,  educational and cultural programs at library branches, and eBooks for the collection.  

How can you participate?  It's easy.  You make a minimum pledge of a penny for every birdie made Wednesday through Sunday by the pros at the Shell Houston Open or make a donation of $20 or more.  For every penny per birdie pledged, you get a guess as to how many birdies will be made this year.  For every $20 pledged, you get a guess. If you guess correctly, you have a chance to win the Grand Prize!  Total birdies for the past five years have been:   1,722  1,528  1,786  1,750  1,615.  Deadline for pledges is Monday, March 31, 2014.
