IJGA alum Stephanie Meadow has had an eventful summer competing on the LPGA Tour, most recently in the U.S. Women’s Open. But her busy schedule hasn’t prevented her from volunteering. On Monday, July 13, 2015, she and 21 other LPGA pros joined Betsy King and Golf Fore Africa in the fight for clean water by participating in the East Coast Classic Pro-Am at Friar’s Head. Their goal is to fund 30 wells in Zambia and the LPGA pro who raises the most money will travel with Golf Fore Africa in December to witness first-hand how they are helping the community.
