Birdies for Babies Program Nears 15K Mark for Season

DURHAM – With the Duke men’s and women’s golf programs in the middle of the 2023 spring seasons, the Birdies for Babies program is nearing the $15,000-mark in earnings for the 2022-23 campaign.  Following the last events, the program has brought in $14,348.50 to benefit the Duke Children’s Neonatal and Pediatric Intensive Care Units.  

Over the six seasons since Birdies for Babies was established, the program has brought in over $100,000 and continues to make a difference at the Duke Children’s Hospital.  

Those looking to support Duke’s partnership with Duke Children’s can make pledges per birdie.  Pledges will start at $0.50 and high pledge increments are welcome.  If the Blue Devils register an eagle (counts as two birdies), albatross (three birdies) and hole-in-one (four birdies) they will count as stated.

Two regular season events remain for the men’s team as the Blue Devils will compete in the Valspar Collegiate Invitational March 27-28 in Palm Beach, Fla., followed by the Stitch Intercollegiate April 7-8.  The women’s team will have Erica Shepherd, Phoebe Brinker and Anne Chen represent the Blue Devils in the Augusta National Women’s Amateur March 29 through April 1 and then close the regular season at the Wolfpack Match Play April 3-4 in Raleigh, N.C.  

Duke Children’s is a 180-bed inpatient hospital within Duke University Hospital. The central outpatient clinic, the McGovern-Davison Children’s Health Center, is a 66,000 square-foot facility that is adjacent to the hospital, and that combines medical and surgical specialty services in one colorful, child-focused location. Additionally, there are numerous Duke Children’s primary care and specialty care clinics through North Carolina to care for the needs of children throughout the state. Duke Children’s is one of the largest health care providers for children in the Southeast, and the only children’s hospital in North Carolina to be ranked in all 10 specialties by the U.S. News & World Report.
