With the Statue of Liberty as the backdrop, LPGA star Cristie Kerr hosted some 72 veterans at Liberty National Golf Club Memorial Day, raising $15,000 for the Wall Street Warfighters Foundation.

“It was an honor to meet and spend the day with these true American Heroes,” Kerr said. “I am proud to be a member of Liberty National and it was truly inspiring to see the members and staff work together to make this a special experience for the amazing service men and women in attendance. The funds raised for Wall Street Warfighters were an added bonus for a terrific charity.”
