The Korea Times : Michelle Wie Donates $300,000 to Charity

The Korea Times : Michelle Wie Donates $300,000 to Charity: "American teenage golfer Michelle Wie will bring more than a golf bag to Korea when she arrives Sunday.

The 16-year-old, coming to play in the Asian Tour's SK Telecom Open next week, also plans to meet Korean recipients of her $300,000 donation designed to help poor Korean children receive needed medical care.

A week before making her second visit to the country where her parents were born, Wie donated 300 million won ($300,000) to an endowment at the Yonsei University Severance Hospital and Korea University Medical Center, which are caring for 30 ill children aged under 15."
