Golfing for 24 hours to raise money for Iowa Boy Scouts

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Instead of sleeping -- the past 13 hours have been filled with concentration and activity.

A group of eastern Iowans have been up all night playing golf at Irv Warren Golf Course in Waterloo. 

It's part of the Birdies by Eagles Golf Tournament. 

The event raises money for Boy Scouts across eastern Iowa. All the money goes to the Boy Scouts Winnebago Council.

All Birdies by Eagles proceeds go toward the Boy Scouts Winnebago Council, covering 17 eastern Iowa counties and about 2,500 Boy Scouts. 

Four teams play in this year's tournament, and pledge certain dollar amounts for every birdie scored.

The tournament's progress can be tracked at www.birdiesbyeagles.org. People can give monetary donations to the team of their choice online as well.

The teams' last round of golf takes place at 1 p.m. Thursday in conjunction with the Timeless Values golf tournament, another annual Boy Scout fundraiser that began in 2010. 

Golfers will complete their 24 hours on the course around 5 p.m. Thursday.
