LPGA stars Paula Creamer, Anna Nordqvist, Ai Miyazato and Thai native Pornanong Phatlum have donated items to benefit flood relief in Thailand. The online auction is at LPGA Thailand Auction. The auction runs until January 2012. Don’t worry, the amounts are in Thai Baht, so for example the 5,000 THB for the Ai Miyazato Tourstage golf balls works out to around 160 USD.
“I’m so sorry about all the floods in Thailand. My heart goes with you and I can’t wait to come back. I love your country. It’s always been very welcoming to us and hopefully the worst is over, so god bless everybody and you are in our thoughts.” – Paula Creamer
