Birdies for Charity breaks record

Birdies for Charity breaks record: The 2011 John Deere Classic broke a record for money raised by almost $1 million.

The 2012 campaign crushed that record — raising $1.5 million more than the previous year.

And it all goes to local charities and community organizations.

During a news conference Wednesday at the John Deere Pavilion in Moline, tournament staff and volunteers shared their excitement with representatives of the 493 funded programs that stopped by to pick up their checks.
