BayCare’s Morton Plant Hospital Receives Funds to Purchase Car Seats

Nov. 30, 2020 – BELLEAIR, Fla. – The Pelican Women’s Championship Presented by DEX Imaging & Konica Minolta will donate $46,600 to help support families in need as part of its Birdies for Babies charitable program. The tournament, which was contested Nov. 16-22, 2020, featured the stars of women’s professional golf competing at Pelican Golf Club in Belleair, Fla.

To give back to the local community, the Pelican Women’s Championship pledged to donate $50 for every birdie scored during all four rounds to BayCare’s Morton Plant Hospital Women’s Services, located in the hospital’s Doyle Tower. The 108-player field carded 932 total birdies, led by third-place finisher Stephanie Meadow with 21 birdies. Sei Young Kim, winner of the 2020 Pelican Women’s Championship, carded 20 total birdies.

The donation will be used to provide car seats for families in need, as well as education on how to properly install and use the car seat.

BayCare is a founding partner of the Pelican Women’s Championship and the tournament’s Official and Exclusive Heath Care System. BayCare is also a supporter of the tournament’s volunteer program that enlists hundreds of volunteers to help run the annual event.
