What is Birdies for Branks?

Birdies for Branks is an annual golf outing in honor of Tom Brankin. Tom's family has started this event to help his legacy continue to live on, even though he is not here to do it himself. Tom spent the majority of his adult life coaching many different sports at the youth, high school, and collegiate level: baseball, basketball, football, and golf. This is why Birdies for Branks raises money every year to donate to All Kids Play, a nonprofit organization that supplies children with the necessary equipment that is needed to participate in the sports they love to play.

Join us on the course for the 3rd annual Birdies for Branks at Balmoral Woods Country Club to honor Tom Brankin while playing the game he loved! Many of you know how involved Coach Branks was in youth sports. All proceeds from the golf outing will be donated to All Kids Play, a non-profit organization that provides financial assistance to families and communities that lack the sufficient resources.
