Open Wide Open
The Open Wide Open is comprised of a group of colleagues who have set out to make a positive impact in and around the Pittsburgh, PA community. Each year we give to execute a one-day golf event where the proceeds are passed to the chosen charity. We have grown in number of participants, sponsors and total donation each year. We very much so look forward to your participation this year!
Helping to Spread Birthday Cheer 365 Days a Year
No child should ever have to mutter the words, “I have never had a birthday party or even my own slice of birthday cake.”
Beverly’s Birthdays is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide birthday cheer for children experiencing homelessness and families in-need. We believe in spreading birthday cheer 365 days a year and that every child, regardless of personal and financial circumstances, deserves special birthday recognition.
This year we are the lucky beneficiary of the 2020 Open Wide Open! For this event to be a success and support our mission of spreading cheer for over 30,000 children annually, we need your support! This letter authorizes the holder to request silent auction items or sponsorships on our behalf.
We hope you will help support our mission of spreading birthday cheer.
You are invited to the 12th Annual Open Wide Open Charity Golf Event!
This year's event will take place on Friday, June 4th, 2021 at Pittsburgh National Golf Club in Gibsonia, PA and will beneﬁt Beverly's Birthdays.
In the ﬁrst 11 years, the Open Wide Open has raised over $175,000 for local non-profits since 2009: Every Child, Inc. and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Western Pennsylvania, The First Tee of Pittsburgh, Manchester Bidwell, Best Buddies, The Woodlands Foundation, Freestore 15104, Muriel's Breath of Life, Orange Arrow, Jeremiah's Place and Spenser's Voice Fund. Strong participation and support was instrumental in making our events a complete success, so we are reaching out to you in hopes that you will align with us for yet another year of success for another great cause!
The golf event is in a four person scramble format with a Noon shotgun start. Hole-in-one prizes include $100,000 and a lease of your choice of one of ﬁve luxury vehicles courtesy of Bobby Rahal Automotive Group. Mulligan packages will be available for sale on the day of the event. The festivities will include lunch as well as an all-you-can-eat buffet dinner, and a silent auction. Non-golfers are invited to attend the dinner and silent auction for a separate donation.
We are looking forward to spending the afternoon with you, enjoying friends and raising money to support the effort to join in the fight against the opioid crisis. Based on previous years’ success, we are expecting a great turnout for the 12th annual outing. Our players are men and women of all ages who live and work throughout the Pittsburgh-metro area. There is also a strong business contingency to our guest list, which makes The Open Wide Open a great opportunity for you to directly communicate your products or services, as well as showcase your support of the community we call home.
Please see the Sponsorship page for participation and sponsorship levels. The Open Wide Open is a non-proﬁt public, volunteer-run corporation so your donation is tax deductible. Any level of support you or your company can contribute would be greatly appreciated.
