$217,000 has now been raised for the Wounded Warrior Project by the CME Group with two players carding eagles on Sunday. Today, two eagles were recorded to go along with the nine from Saturday. It brings the total money raised this year to $217,000. Through the first 18 tournaments prior to the Wegmans LPGA Championship, $206,000 had been raised.
“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.
