Birdies for Charity


While the COVID-19 pandemic has the nation and our area under some new guidelines, we are pleased to be able to announce that something is "normal", that being the Birdies for Charity Program. And this program is more important than ever this year to Rock River Hospice & Home.


Like everyone, nobody knows what the full impact of the virus will have  on our communities.


We are asking you to consider making a donation for Rock River Hospice & Home during this year's Birdies for Charity. Yes, the program will continue regardless of the playing of the John Deere Classic. As of now, the tournament is scheduled to be played as normal, but that may change.


Due to a shorter time-line and limited staffing of the Birdies for Charity office, we are asking you to make your donation online by visiting, Birdies for Charity for RRHH which will take you directly to the page for RRHH. Please make sure you are on our donation page by verifying the Birdie number listed is 1366.


Each paid donation in advance will qualify for a 5% match from the John Deere Bonus Fund.


Thank you in advance for investing in Rock River Hospice & Home, the services we provide and our communities.
