Seve tribute raises $1m for foundation
May 25, 2011

Nearly $1 million has been raised for the Seve Ballesteros Foundation and a cancer charity during a tribute day for the late Spanish golfer.

A field of 24 leading golfers, including Colin Montgomerie, Jose Maria Olazabal and Retief Goosen, took part in the Ole Seve! pro-am at Wentworth on Monday. An auction was also held.

A total of $996,100 was raised for Ballesteros’ foundation and Cancer Research UK, raising the amount raised since the two organizations linked up 2009 to more than $2.1 million.

Olazabal, a great friend of Ballesteros, said “I’m sure he’d be proud of what everyone has achieved.”

Ballesteros died on May 7 from brain cancer.
