More than 1,500 Eagles -- Each One with a Story: Eagles Made During PGA TOUR and LPGA Season Result in Record Donation to St. Jude
Date:12/1/2008

MEMPHIS, Tenn., Dec. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- It is a cold December day in Memphis, Tennessee and FedExCup Champion Vijay Singh, FedExCup Runner-up Camilo Villegas and LPGA star Morgan Pressel have gathered here -- but not to play golf. The impetus that has brought three of the biggest names in professional golf to Memphis is something much more important than any game of golf -- children battling cancer.

Singh, Villegas and Pressel are in Memphis on the campus of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital(R) to help present a record-breaking donation to the hospital raised through the 2008 Eagles for St. Jude program. While it certainly would have been easier for each to simply mail a check, the trio wouldn't have missed being here for the world. For them, this is not a typical charitable endeavor.

Eagles for St. Jude is a powerful program that has brought these three golfers, the PGA TOUR, LPGA, the Golf Channel and companies like Stanford Financial Group and FedEx Corp (NYSE: FDX) together with the sole purpose of increasing donations to St. Jude, one of the world's premier pediatric cancer research centers.

The goal of the 2008 Eagles for St. Jude program was to raise $2 million for St. Jude during this year's PGA TOUR and LPGA season -- a goal that was shattered today when Stanford Financial Group presented a record-breaking $2.57 million donation from Eagles for St. Jude to the hospital. In addition to Stanford's donation of $1,000 for each of the 1,118 eagles recorded on the PGA TOUR and the 469 eagles on the LPGA Tour, the donation included donations from Singh, Villegas, Pressel, the Stanford St. Jude Championship, the PGA TOUR, LPGA and FedEx, as well
