The Mac McDonald Everyday Shop & Cafe Children's Golf Classic

Monticello Media is pleased to team up with Mac McDonald and Virginia Oil to present a golf tournament benefitting pediatric oncology at the UVA Children's Hospital. The tournament, to be played May 11th at the Keswick Club, will also feature Ladies Professional Golf Association star Morgan Pressel.

We are thrilled to have a local company like Virginia Oil and the Everyday Shop and Cafe join our efforts with our fundraising mission. Mac’s golf tournament is for a great cause and we want to do everything we can for the UVA Children’s Hospital. The Everyday Shop and Cafe has brought a lot of support to the table.

UVA Children’s Hospital is a leading center for children’s healthcare in the region, recording approximately 100,000 patient visits annually. Most of these children and their families come from the local community, from all levels of need and income. A sizeable percentage is treated for a variety of different childhood cancers.

Morgan Pressel, who will play a nine-hole exhibition the morning of May 11th prior to the tournament, has been a major supporter of cancer research. Her mother, Kathy, died five years ago from cancer complications and Pressel has worked with the American Cancer Society as well as St. Jude’s Hospital assisting with pediatric oncology research.

Tickets for the Pressel exhibition will go on sale soon and will be available at all Everyday Shop and Cafe locations. All proceeds from the exhibition and tournament will benefit pediatric oncology research at the University of Virginia Children’s Hospital.
