After winning the Portland Classic, Stacy Lewis donated her $195,000 prize money to the Houston flood victims.
"We're going to be able to help people rebuild houses and get their homes back. That's more important than any win," said Lewis who gained her first LPGA tour win since 2014.
Stacey started the final day with a three-shot and eventually won by one shot from South Korea's Chun In-gee.
Lewis carded a 69 in her last round in Oregon to finish on 20-under, while In-gee made a real fist of it with a 66.
Stacey had pledged to donate her winnings to the relief effort following Storm Harvey in Houston, where she and her husband have a house, prior to the tournament.
Lewis was also told that one of her sponsors, KMG, would match her donation.
