Pressel kicking off 2019 with another big event of giving
Boca Raton, Fla. (CBS12) —
The Morgan Pressel Foundation has raised $7.5 million over 11 years, and 2019 may be bigger than ever. Boca Raton resident Morgan Pressel says the annual "Morgan and Friends" golf tournament at St. Andrews Country Club may eclipse last year's total with over $1 million raised.
The money goes to fight breast cancer, the disease that took Morgan's mother Kathi Krickstein Pressel 15 years ago. Pressel has her name on a wing at the Boca Raton Regional Hospital. Over the past year, Pressel also unveiled her second Mammovan, that features her face on one side, and her mom's face on the other.
This year's "Morgan and Friends" golf tournament will be held on January 6th and 7th, and features some of the biggest names in golf like Lexi Thompson, Juli Inkster and Paula Creamer. The St. Andrews Country Club community, where Pressel was born and raised, has always been the driver of the event.
Pressel has two career victories on the LPGA Tour, and 59 Top 10's and has been a member of the American Solheim Cup team 5 times.
