Today, The DICK'S Sporting Goods Foundation announced a $50,000 donation to LPGA legend Annika Sörenstam's ANNIKA Foundation's "Share My Passion" girls golf clinic.

The ANNIKA Foundation's "Share My Passion" Clinics introduce young girls ages 6 – 12 to the great game of golf while also giving them a behind the scenes tour of a professional golf event. These events include a healthy lunch, instructional stations, and a golfing clinic taught by World Golf Hall of Famer Annika.

"The DICK'S Sporting Goods Foundation Sports Matter grant, will be used to develop Share My Passion clinics for The Annika Foundation, helping Annika to continue to share and grow her love of the game with young girls," said James Rooney, Director of The DICK'S Sporting Goods Foundation, "The DICK'S Foundation is thrilled to partner with Annika on her charitable endeavors and welcomes her to the Sports Matter family."

Also today, the annual Golf Expo, held in connection with the DICK'S Sporting Goods Open, will take place at 5:00PM at En-Joie Golf Course. This will be Annika's first appearance in Endicott. Regarded as one of the top LPGA golfers of all time, Annika has recorded 72 LPGA victories, including 10 majors, in addition to 90 international triumphs.

"In Annika Sörenstam, we have selected an outstanding professional golfer to conduct this year's seminar," said John M. Carrigg, president and chief executive officer of UHS. "We're sure that those attending our free Golf Expo in August will be impressed with what they can learn and will also have an enjoyable time throughout the evening."

The Golf Expo will start at 5 p.m., with Annika's live seminar beginning at about 6 p.m. and featuring tips on improving golf swings and overall fitness.

Under the tent this year, UHS will provide educational materials related to urology, orthopedics and men's and women's health issues. Providers and clinical experts from several specialties will be on hand for informal question-and-answer sessions at UHS' exhibition booths.

Free, heart-healthy refreshments will be available. Each attendee will receive giveaways, including a DICK'S Sporting Goods gift card, and will be able to enter prize drawings.

Since 2014, DICK'S Sporting Goods and The DICK'S Sporting Goods Foundation have pledged over $50 million to support teams and raise awareness of the importance of youth sports across the country through its Sports Matter initiative. To learn more, visit sportsmatter.org.
