Morgan Pressel partnered with Michael Israel, internationally renowned performance artist, LPGA Tour stars Paula Creamer, Brittany Lincicome, Lexi Thompson and St. Andrews Country Club members to raise funds to support the Morgan Pressel Foundation. The foundation supports Boca Raton Regional Hospital, Kathryn Krickstein Pressel MammoVan, Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center and is launching a new project with the Boca Raton Regional Hospital – the Morgan Pressel Center for Cancer Genetics. Each year the Morgan & Friends Fight Cancer Golf Tournament enjoys significant growth from St. Andrews Country Club member participation, sponsors and donations and this year was no exception.

Pressel said, "I am so appreciative of the support from my fellow St. Andrews members who continually amaze me with their generosity towards the foundation and the fight against breast cancer. I also can't thank the Morgan Pressel Foundation committee enough for their commitment to creating an outstanding event year after year. The record funds raised this year are due a large part to Paula, Brittany, Lexi and Michael and their participation and generosity of their time, and I thank you all."

The event kicked off Sunday evening with an exclusive cocktail reception, dinner and silent and live auctions including a spectacular performance by Michael Israel who created five paintings for the auction.  Monday winning bidders played holes with an LPGA star and enjoyed an incredible golf exhibition put on by Morgan & her Friends, entertaining more than 150 club members with anecdotes about their career, hitting shots and sharing tips with the members.

Craig D. Martin, Chief Operating Officer and General Manager at St. Andrews Country Club summarized, "We are proud of Morgan, her foundation and all of the St. Andrews Country Club members for putting together another first-class golf tournament and fund raising effort. It is hard to keep topping the previous year's event but Morgan and her team continue to expand participation and funds raised. I am always impressed by the professionalism and five-star logistics executed by the foundation and our professional staff."
