Annika and Friends to Net 150K

Miramar Beach, FL--Annika Sorenstam's "Annika Foundation" is now about 150 thousand dollars richer thanks to a star studded affair at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort this past weekend.

"Annika and Friends" a big success even though mother nature played a little havoc with Sunday's scheduled celebrity golf tournament.

While the skies raged in the morning, Annika decided to host a question and answer session following her mother's day brunch. All the LPGA stars on hand taking part, including Nancy Lopez, world number one Yani Tseng, Morgan Pressel among others.

Just after midday the skies cleared enough for the teams to hit the Raven Golf Course, the day then wrapped with a concert by Darius Rucker, on a lawn at Grand Boulevard.

Foundation folks tell us the proceeds from the the auction from Saturday night's dinner, the golf and concert, are expected to net in the neighborhood of $150,000.

That money will go towards promoting healthier, more active lifestyles for kids in school, to fight childhood obesity and childhood diabetes.
