Support Greater Richmond SCAN during the
Dominion Energy
Charity Classic
Birdies for Charity program

The Dominion Energy Charity Classic Birdies for Charity program enables Richmond-area charities to use the Dominion Energy Charity Classic tournament as a fundraising platform.

The program gives SCAN an opportunity to generate contributions through flat donations or based on the number of "birdies" made by PGA TOUR Champions players during the tournament.

  • "Par" is the normal expected score on any given hole on the golf course.
  • A "birdie" is a score of one stroke better than "par" for any golf hole. For example, on a par-4 hole, a score of 3 is a birdie.
There are two types of pledges:
  • A per-birdie amount for every birdie made by the PGA TOUR Champions professionals during the Dominion Energy Charity Classic, with an option to cap at a certain amount
  • A one-time flat donation, with a minimum flat donation of $25.
  • Visit
  • Select 'one-time fixed donation' OR 'score-based donation' (per birdie)
  • Choose Greater Richmond SCAN from the drop-down list of participating charities. *Should already be chosen for you!
  • Fill out the billing information form. One-time flat donations will be processed immediately, and per-birdie donations will be processed after the tournament when the number of birdies made during competition rounds is determined.

Patsy Buelow, Richmond CASA Volunteer and SCAN Board Member  
While attending SCAN's Child Advocate's Breakfast with a former Board Member, Patsy Buelow felt immediately compelled to support SCAN's work. Soon after the breakfast, Patsy attended the annual Protector's Circle event where a CASA Volunteer spoke about her experience. At that moment, Patsy simply said "I need to do this."  
Patsy has been a Richmond CASA for just over 17 months, and it has been a rewarding experience for her.  
"Being a CASA gives a voice to those who don't have one. It's easy to overlook things that aren't directly affecting you, but if you look, there is so much you can do to make a difference," said Patsy. "My relationship with the children I am advocating for touches me directly. The work can be challenging but also so rewarding and impactful."
Patsy says the most eye-opening part of her work as a Richmond CASA is seeing the impact that childhood trauma has on the children, their families and their community.
"It has been surprising to see the scope of trauma that one child can have in their life, and what it takes to overcome it," said Patsy. "In this work, you really see the true impact of trauma from one generation to the next."
