Morgan Stanley donates $250,000 to charity through the Eagles for Impact Challenge at THE PLAYERS

May 15, 2017

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla.- Morgan Stanley, a Proud Partner of THE PLAYERS Championship, has made a $250,000 donation to the Ronald McDonald Family Room at Wolfson Children’s Hospital in Jacksonville, Fla., as part of The Eagles for Impact Challenge at this year’s tournament. Over the course of four rounds, Morgan Stanley was tracking eagles and donating for every eagle made during the tournament.

The donation will be part of a grant to renovate, maintain and operate the Ronald McDonald Family Room, including a new garden. Opened in 1993, the Ronald McDonald Family Room offers a respite for families while their children receive care. Local Morgan Stanley employees will also volunteer to help support the families that use the room and provide maintenance as needed for the room and garden.

Of the 37 eagles made during the tournament, 10 were made by five players who each made two during the week – Sergio Garcia, Seung-Yul Noh, Dustin Johnson, William McGirt and Blayne Barber. PLAYERS champion Si Woo Kim, helped out the cause with his eagle on the par-5, 16th hole during the first round.

The Eagles for Impact Challenge is part of Morgan Stanley’s more than 40-year commitment to helping children get a healthy start to life.
