Catholic Charities is excited to announce our fundraising partnership with the 2018 Travelers Championship Birdies for Charity program! The Travelers Championship will donate 100% of your gift to our organization, plus at least a 15% bonus match.
Your pledge commitment to Catholic Charities will directly support our programs for children in Hartford, Litchfield and New Haven counties. Thank you for your continued support! All gifts are 100% tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law.
The Travelers Championship is Connecticut’s largest annual professional sporting event and one of only two New England stops on the PGA TOUR. Held each year at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Conn., the tournament is an economic winner for the state and region, creating millions of dollars in local impact and generating money for charitable organizations. Each year the tournament donates 100 percent of net proceeds to charity and also provides a platform for our charitable partners to raise awareness for their missions. In 2017, the Travelers Championship generated $1.7 million for 165 charities throughout the region. This brings the total to more than $38 million for regional charities since 1952.
