Twelve-time LPGA Tour winner and five-time U.S. Solheim Cup Team veteran Cristie Kerr will host the fifth-annual Birdies for Breast Cancer Charity Classic on Friday, Aug. 14, 2009, at Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City, N.J. The day will feature an early afternoon, shotgun-start tournament followed by an evening gala. Proceeds from the event will go toward the construction and development of The Cristie Kerr Women's Health Center. The center will offer breast cancer screening programs including free mammograms and education to women with or without insurance. Since 2003, Birdies for Breast Cancer has raised more than $650,000 for breast cancer research and education. More information is available at www.cristiekerrgolf.com.
