Birdies for Breast Cancer has raised money for other foundations and research institutions, such as Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona. However, its greatest beneficiary is the Cristie Kerr Women's Health Center in Jersey City, New Jersey. Part of LibertyHealth's Jersey City Medical Center, the Kerr center has provided breast cancer diagnosis and treatment since 2010. Nearly half of the Kerr center’s patients are on charity care or Medicaid. For more information, visit http://www.cristiekerrgolf.com/birdies-for-breast-cancer/.

"I am excited to partner with Duff & Phelps, its Network of Women and these three talented LPGA colleagues to raise money for and draw attention to Birdies For Breast Cancer – a cause that is so critically important to women and their families," said Kerr. "I look forward to mentoring these exceptional athletes early in their careers, while working together to raise funds that will improve health care options available to patients in need."

Kerr has a combined 15 wins on the LPGA Tour and was the top-ranked golfer in the Women's World Golf Rankings in 2010. In addition, Kerr has enjoyed a career featuring 140 top-ten finishes, two major victories, six Solheim Cup selections and over $14 million in career earnings; she is the top American and fourth on the global list.

Duff & Phelps has sponsored Kerr since January 2011. This year she will wear the Duff & Phelps logo on the front of her hat during competitions and participate in client events produced by Duff & Phelps.

Blake Sports Group and the Madison Green Agency were key partners in creating this program with Duff & Phelps.
