Woods Pledges $500000 to Hospital

Tiger Woods has pledged $500,000 to build an outdoor pavilion at the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn. The pavilion is to be used for family get-togethers, hospital officials announced.
The donation was the largest ever by The Tiger Woods Foundation, created in December of 1996.
The St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is the main charity of the PGA Tour's FedEx St. Jude Classic, held in Memphis. The hospital specializes in research on childhood cancer and accepts patients who cannot afford treatment.
