BOCA RATON, Fla., Nov. 11 St. Andrews Country Club announced the Third Annual Morgan & Friends Fight Cancer Tournament will be held on January 4 and 5, 2010. Since 2008, the members of St. Andrews Country Club have donated over $750,000 to the Morgan & Friends Fight Cancer charity benefitting the Lynn Cancer Center at Boca Raton Community Hospital and Sylvester Cancer Center, Miller School of Medicine at the University of Miami. Funds contributed by the membership this year will provide much needed funds to both institutions in their continued effort to find a cure for breast cancer.
Players in this year's Morgan & Friends Fight Cancer Tournament include Morgan Pressel, Cristie Kerr, Christina Kim and Bubba Watson, who will kick off a Monday night reception and auctions with over 500 St. Andrews Country Club members and select sponsors in attendance. On Tuesday, four foursomes will play nine holes with one of the professional golfers immediately following the golf exhibition showcasing Pressel, Kerr, Kim and Watson.
"The continued support by the membership, not only monetarily but also in their time to organize all aspects of the event, truly reflects the genuine commitment to Morgan and her charity, and we are excited to make this year's event even greater," said Craig Martin, Chief Operating Officer and General Manager at St. Andrews Country Club.
Pressel added, "I am thankful to all the members at St. Andrews Country Club and the sponsors they secured in 2009 to help make the Kathryn Krickstein Pressel MammoVan that provides mobile state-of-the-art digital mammography to the residents of Palm Beach County a reality. With their continued generosity we can find a cure."
