Donors can make a one-time flat donation or can pledge one cent or more per birdie.

“This year marks the 25th anniversary of production of BMW automobiles in Upstate South Carolina for the global market, so it is an exciting time for us, the tournament and its beneficiaries,” said Max Metcalf, secretary/treasurer, BMW Charity Pro-Am presented by SYNNEX Corporation. “The tournament is a great event for our community that allows us to give back to these four charities and others through the Birdie for Charity program. Additionally, tournament week is an ideal time to show off the Upstate and host potential clients and perspective customers, reward employees, and even be part of the excitement through sponsorship, playing and volunteer opportunities.”

Thornblade Club and The Cliffs Valley will return as the host courses this year. The 2019 tournament will follow a modified format to feature an amateur and celebrity cut at the conclusion of 36 holes after all contestants in the field complete 18 holes at both courses.

“The new Pro-Am format provides a great product for our amateurs and celebrities, and we are excited to offer a memorable week for fans, sponsors and players as we continue to grow one of the Tour’s longest-running events,” said Bob Nitto, president of South Carolina Charities, Inc. “Thornblade Club and The Cliffs Valley have tremendous histories with our tournament and have been great partners of the Tour, and we are thrilled to be returning to each course.”
