Birdies for Charity

The 2002 Southern Farm Bureau Classic at Annandale is tied to a fundraiser for children's services offered by the Meridian Speech and Hearing Center.

Volunteers will be asking for pledges based on the number of birdies scored at the PGA Tournament in late October.

"What we'd like to do is encourage everyone, if a friend, neighbor or co-worker comes to you and asks for a pledge, consider pleading a penny per birdie that will go to our charity," said Annette Wimberly of the Meridian Speech and Hearing Center.

Wimberly promoted the program Monday in a speech to the Sertoma Club. You may also buy tickets for a local drawing to get tickets for the tournament.
