TOGETHER, ANYTHING'S POSSIBLE
“Together, anything's possible”is the PGA TOUR's and Champions Tour's charitable platform that focuses on the efforts of our players, tournaments, volunteers, sponsors, fans and charities. The Champions Tour's charitable mission is an integral component of its value proposition and charitable donations have a significant impact in the communities served by Champions Tour events.

This year, Red Diamond is our proud sponsor of the Birdies for Charity “Bonus Bucks!” Their support allows for the top ten charities that raise the most money to receive additional funds from Red Diamond on behalf of the Regions Tradition. The top ten charities receive “Red Diamond Bonus Bucks” with the top charity receiving $10,000!
Bonus Bucks will be shared in proportion to the pledges collected on their behalf.
Bonus Bucks are paid based on a charity’s total pledges paid, not on the total pledges made. Example: Charity A solicited $20,000 in pledges, but only $10,000 is collected. Charity A receives Red Diamond Bonus Bucks based on the $10,000 collected.
Top Ten Charities:
1st place – match up to $10,000
2nd place – match up to $7,500
3rd place – match up to $5,000

Children's of Alabama
Children’s of Alabama has provided specialized medical care for ill and injured children across the state and throughout the southeastern U.S. since 1911. It is the only hospital in Alabama dedicated solely to the care and treatment of children. Ten of its divisions – pulmonology, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopedics, urology, neonatology, cancer, cardiology, gastroenterology, endocrinology and nephrology—were recently ranked among the best children’s hospital programs in the nation by US News & World Report.
Children’s is one of the 10 busiest pediatric hospitals in the nation and is home to Alabama’s only pediatric trauma center and the only pediatric burn center in the Southeast. Some of its nationally-renowned premier programs include The Alabama Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders, the Lowder Blood and Marrow Transplantation Program, a comprehensive neonatal surgical center and the fast-growing pediatric rheumatology program. Outpatient care is provided through primary care offices and outpatient centers throughout Alabama. Last year, patients made more than 634,000 outpatient and nearly 14,000 inpatient visits to Children’s.
Children’s is recognized by the American Nurses Credentialing Center as a Magnet-designated hospital for excellence in nursing care. It is a private, not-for-profit hospital that serves as the primary site of the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) pediatric medicine, surgery, research and residency programs. A 750,000-square-feet expansion is currently under construction
