Primerica Helps Raise More Than $385,000 for 2021 ‘Birdies for Charity’ Program

Through the 2021 Birdies for Charity program, Primerica and the Gwinnett Championship Foundation helped raise $385,000 for metro Atlanta charities. Primerica served as the official sponsor of the fundraising event during the 2021 Mitsubishi Classic Golf Tournament June 2 at the PGA Tour’s acclaimed TPC Sugarloaf course.

This year’s Birdies for Charity beneficiaries included:  Annandale Village, Cooper’s Crew, Grayson Cluster Schools Foundation, Special Needs Schools of Gwinnett and the Women’s Club of Sugarloaf Country Club.

“We’re thrilled with the success of this year’s program,” says Kathryn Kieser, EVP, chief reputation officer and chair of The Primerica Foundation. “Meeting with each of the deserving organizations and hearing their unique stories was enlightening. This donation will help them make a positive impact in the communities where we work and live.”

“Primerica was an exceptional partner, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the result of this year’s program,” says Monte Ortel, executive director of the Mitsubishi Electric Classic. “On behalf of the Mitsubishi Electric Classic and the Gwinnett Championship Foundation, we want to thank Primerica for their outstanding support.”

Since its inception in 2016, the Birdies for Charity program has helped raise approximately $1.5 million toward metro Atlanta charities through the Mitsubishi Electric Classic.
