The LPGA announced today (April 22) that “Lotte has donated $100,000 (approximately $133 million). The LPGA will also donate an additional $25,000 (33 million won) to support ongoing relief efforts.” Earlier, Lotte Group donated $100,000 to the Friends of Hawaii on Sept. 17 to help repair damage and provide emergency assistance to survivors.

The LPGA has played the Lotte Championship in Hawaii since 2012. From the inaugural event through 2019, the tournament was held at Ko Olina Golf Club, followed by Kapolei Golf Club in 2021, and last year and this year at Hoakalei Country Club on the island of Oahu. Lotte Group, which has sponsored the tournament for 11 years, has donated a total of $330,000 to support the livelihoods of low-income families in Hawaii.

The LPGA encouraged players, fans, and others to donate. “For more than a decade, the LPGA has had the wonderful opportunity to compete in Hawaii. We are heartbroken by the destruction and devastation on Maui and what the people there have experienced, and we encourage our players, partners and fans to donate to those affected by the wildfires.”
