Birdies for Babies Charitable Program
The Pelican Women's Championship is donating thousands of dollars to help support families in need as part of its 'Birdies for Babies' charitable program. To give back to the community, the Pelican Women's Championship has pledged to donate $50 for every birdie scored during all four rounds of the tournament to the BayCare Foundation and BayCare's Morton Plant Hospital Women's Services, located in the hospital's Doyle Tower, to help provide home monitoring blood pressure kits for new mothers who are at highest risk of developing complications.
Help us reach our goal of $50,000 to fund home-monitoring blood pressure kits for women at highest risk of developing preeclampsia and other hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. This project will address some of the disparities in health outcomes that underserved and minority pregnant women experience with decreased access to prenatal care and higher rates of pregnancy mortality and morbidity related to gestational hypertension.
