On January 8th and 9th Morgan Pressel held her fifth annual Morgan and Friends Fight Cancer Tournament. Fellow LPGA Tour players Paula Creamer, Cristie Kerr, Brittany Lincicome and Lexi Thompson were on hand to support their friend in her efforts to raise money for breast cancer awareness.
With a generous last minute donation of $18,000, the event raised $475,000 through an evening reception and day of golf and friendship, in memory of her mother, Kathy Krickstein Pressel.
The money raised, each year, supports patient care and research at The Boca Raton Regional Hospital, the University of Miami Sylvester Cancer Center as well as Hospice By The Sea.
In 2010 the Kathryn Krickstein Pressel Mammovan, under the direction of the Boca Raton Regional Hospital became a reality. This mobile miracle travels throughout Palm Beach County providing affordable breast exams and health care to those who might not otherwise receive it. Since March 2010 the Mammovan has provided 2518 mammograms.
