Whitey’s Announces New Flavor For The John Deere Classic
In honor of the 50th Anniversary of the John Deere Classic, Whitey's Ice Cream has been selling a new flavor to commemorate the golf tournament's milestone. But this new flavor of ice cream is also allowing Whitey's to give back in an incredible way to Birdies For Charity.
On June 18th, Whitey's Ice Cream introduced a brand new flavor to their lineup for a special reason. To commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the John Deere Classic, Whitey's announced a partnership with the John Deere Classic and created a John Deere Classic flavor.
This ice cream features the iconic colors of John Deere, green and yellow. The new flavor is a mix of lemon custard and lime sherbet which Whitey's officials say "is the perfect combo!" This John Deere Classic flavor is also raising money for Birdies For Charity.
According to KWQC, this Friday, July 2nd, half of all purchases of the new John Deere Classic flavor will go back to Birdies For Charity. Since 1971, the John Deere Classic has delivered over $133 million to regional charities, most of it through the Birdies for Charity program which raises millions of dollars every year.
Despite there not being a tournament last year, Birdies for Charity raised $12.22 million which went to 465 charities. In 2019, Birdies for Charity raises $13.82 million for 542 local and regional charities.
You can purchase the John Deere Classic 50th Anniversary Flavor at all Whitey's locations.
This year's 50th running of the John Deere Classic will run from July 7-11. Tickets and packages are available for purchase still. The John Deere Classic is following the PGA Tour's social distance and masking guidelines, which are all in accordance with the CDC guidelines.
