July 6, 2012 - Se Ri Pak announced today that she has chosen to promote the Koreatown Youth and Community Center (KYCC), a Los Angeles-based nonprofit, when she returns to Blackwolf Run in Kohler, Wis. at the 2012 U.S. Women's Open Championship. Pak's caddy will be carrying a commemorative golf bag prominently highlighting KYCC with the nonprofit's logo at the July 5-8 tournament.
Pak was the youngest-ever winner of the U.S. Women's Open in 1998 at Blackwolf Run. Her victory there inspired legions of South Korean golfers to follow her path. "My greatest thrill over the years since my win at Blackwolf Run has been the opportunity to work with children. That is why KYCC is an organization that is so close to my heart." says the South Korean Hall of Fame golfer. "They are one of the oldest Korean American organizations, and they specifically serve low-income and recently immigrated children and their families.
KYCC Executive Director Johng Ho Song says, "We are thrilled with Se Ri Pak's continued support for KYCC. Her involvement with our mission over the past few years means a lot to us and the community."
