In the market for a new set of wheels?

Donate $20 or more to the Nicklaus Children’s Healthcare Foundation and you could be the lucky winner of a 2021 Honda.

Here’s how it works: To coincide with the upcoming Honda Classic, which will be played March 18-21 at the PGA National Resort & Spa’s Champions course, in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., the Nicklaus Children’s Healthcare Foundation (the Honda Classic’s designated main beneficiary) is hosting a contest: Birdies for Children. All you have to do to enter is donate $20 or more and guess how many birdies will be made over the course of the Honda Classic’s four tournament days. Guess correctly and you’ll win a 2021 Honda. (In case of ties, the winner will be chosen by random drawing. For all the rules, click here.)

Need some help with that prediction? Over the last decade, the number of birdies made has ranged from 1,000 to 1,400. Last year, there were 1,172.

Jack and Barbara Nicklaus founded the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation in 2004. Donations to the Foundation support the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital and innovative programs focused on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of childhood illness.

The best news with this contest? The more you donate, you more guesses you get. A $20 donation entitles you to one guess, $40 gets you two, $50 gets you three, $100 gets you six, $250 gets you 15 and $500 gets you 30. Though you can donate any amount, the maximum number of guesses you can make is 30.

Ready to try your luck? Don’t wait too long — the last day to pledge is March 17. You can make your donation and guess the number of birdies at the 2021 Honda Classic by clicking here.
