Choi donates to B&G Clubs

LPGA golfer Na-Yeon Choi presented a check for $30,000 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Sheboygan County, in support of their work with thousands of youth in the Sheboygan area. The check presentation took place at the Kraft Nabisco Championship in Palm Springs, where Choi is playing this week.

Choi has contributed greatly in her native Korea – both in time and money – to youth causes. Two events caused her to make this gift.

The first was a visit to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Toledo in 2011, as the defending champion of the Jamie Farr Golf Tournament. She was impressed with the club members and the work of Boys & Girls Clubs.

The second event was her win at the US Women’s Open at Black Wolf Run in July of 2012. Said a spokesperson for Choi, “Giving back to Sheboygan is important to Na-Yeon, as she has great memories of the tournament there, and always will!”

A golfer since the age of 11, Choi is a force on the LPGA Tour, where she has won nearly $8 million and is third in the Rolex Rankings. She is a major supporter of girls sports, having been quoted as saying, “I want to give the girls my message: Have a dream and achieve it.”

Kim Vue, the 2013 Youth of the Year for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Sheboygan County, accepted the check along with Bob O’Hara, executive director of the organization. “This is a generous expression of support for our clubs from a great athlete and a fine person”, said O’Hara. “This gift will help us continue our focus on academic excellence, healthy lifestyles and moral leadership.”
