Birdies for a Cause has been a USC Boys Golf Team tradition since 2011. The purpose of this annual project is to raise money and awareness for a specific charity through donations or pledges for every birdie earned by the JV and Varsity golf team members through their 2023 competitive season. The USC Boys Golf Team has raised over $75,000 in support of local Pittsburgh charities since 2011.
This year, the team has selected the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and the Kids for Wish Kids program, as their charity. The team understands and supports the valuable work done by Make-A-Wish and is especially connected to raising money to support the Make-A-Wish mission of creating life-changing wishes for children, aged 2 ½ to 18, living with critical illnesses. Since 2020, the USC Boys Golf Team has raised enough to grant four wishes for local children with critical illnesses.
The Birdies for a Cause drive is linked to the boys’ golf efforts - the more birdies they score, the more $$ they raise for Make-A-Wish! We have continuing support here in the USC community, we hope to broaden the reach of our fundraising to the entirety of the Pittsburgh region. We welcome you to contribute online or seek out your USC Boys Golf Team Member to donate in person; we thank you in advance for your support!
