James Driscoll, a native Bostonian and member of the PGA TOUR, has initiated Birdies for Boston, a fundraising effort to benefit the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. James has chosen The One Fund Boston designed to raise money to help those families most affected by the tragic events that unfolded during the 2013 Boston Marathon. The Fund was launched the day following the tragedy by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino and has received commitments from many leaders in the Boston community. It is anticipated that the organization will receive 501 (c)(3) status, and qualify as a tax exempt entity, retroactive to the date of the Fund’s formation, which is April 16, 2013. 100% of donations received will be directed towards The One Fund Boston.
Those wishing to stand behind James and his fellow PGA TOUR pros and support the victims are encouraged to contribute to the effort by clicking the 'Support James' Causes' link below. Birdies for Boston will launch in advance of the RBC Heritage to be held at Harbour Town Golf Links, Hilton Head, SC (April 18-21) and continue the following week at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to be held the following week at TPC Louisiana, Avondale, LA (April 25-28).
Pray for Boston.
