EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - The Evansville Country Club was painted pink Monday as they celebrated the 25th year of the Deaconess Women’s Classic.
First held back in 1995, the event has sold out every year and 2019 was no different. Women from all over the Tri-State gathered to be apart and even get some pointers from a pro.
15-year vet on the LPGA Tour, Brittany Lincicome held a clinic on Monday. She has eight wins on the tour with her career earnings totaling more than $8 million and she was happy to take part in Evansville.
“This is my 15th year as a pro so I’ve been so blessed to have such a wonderful career and play golf for a living," explains Lincicome. "To be able to give my time to events like this to help raise money for great causes, whether it’s for breast cancer, for kids or whatever it may be, I’m just in such a great position to give back and help the communities. To have this many women come together for an event is so cool, i literally never see that ever throughout the year, to be ehre to do a clinic for them, to hit some shots for them it’s such a wonderful day.”
The Deaconess Women’s Classic has raised more than $2.5 million from previous golf outings. That money has helped provide more than 12,000 mammograms and ultrasounds for women here in the Tri-State.
