“Wounded Warrior Project® Weekends” is a season-long charity program that will be tied into the Race to the CME Globe. Each Saturday and Sunday at LPGA tournaments, CME Group will donate $1,000 to Wounded
Warrior Project® for each eagle that is recorded. This amount will increase to $5,000 for each eagle during the weekend of the CME Group Tour Championship and a formal check will be presented to the Wounded Warrior Project® during the trophy ceremony at the CME Group Tour Championship.
Sunday, 12 eagles were recorded to go along with the 7 from Saturday. It brings the total money raised this year to $181,000. Through the first 14 tournaments prior to the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic, $162,000 had been raised.
