Pressel, her Morgan Pressel Foundation Committee, St. Andrews CC members and LPGA stars Paula Creamer, Juli Inkster, Stacy Lewis, Gerina Piller and Lexi Thompson helped make this year the most successful fund-raiser yet.

The foundation supports Boca Raton Regional Hospital, Kathryn Krickstein Pressel MammoVan, Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center and the Morgan Pressel Center for Cancer Genetics. Each year the Morgan & Friends Fight Cancer Golf Tournament enjoys significant growth from St. Andrews member participation, sponsors and donations.

Pressel said, "For seven years, together with my fellow St. Andrews members and numerous LPGA and PGA stars, we have raised over $3.4 million dollars in the fight against breast cancer. It amazes me when I think of that amount being raised for a cause so close to me and many others." Pressel added, "I thank the Morgan Pressel Foundation committee for their ongoing commitment; to the St. Andrews participants and sponsors for their generosity; and to friends Paula, Juli, Stacy, Gerina and Lexi who offered their time to help make this year's event a record fund-raiser."

Bobby Collins, superstar comedian, starred Sunday evening at the cocktail reception, dinner and silent and live auctions.  On Monday, winning bidders played 9 holes with an LPGA star and enjoyed golf clinics hosted by Pressel and friends, entertaining 175 club members with personal anecdotes about their careers.

Craig D. Martin, COO/GM St. Andrews CC recapped, "Every year this event gains momentum through member participation and sponsorships as a result of the hard work Morgan and her foundation put in to produce a first-class golf tournament and fund-raising effort. The professionalism and five-star logistics executed by the foundation and our professional staff continues to impress me and all those who participate in this exclusive member-only event."
