The Australian model and golfer wants to head to Jamaica to play in the Mojo6 Golf Tournament, but to get there she needs votes. Lots of 'em. And, if she gets enough votes to become the 16th player for the event and wins, she'll donate her $1 million winnings to 3 charities.

Anna has said she will split her prize money between International Medical Corps, UNICEF and Inspire, a foundation that helps youth victims of suicide. She lost her mother to suicide at age 5, so has close ties to Inspire.

The first-ever Mojo6 Tournament will be aired May 1 and 2, and will feature 'raceway golf.' That means 16 gals will play 30 six-hole matches in 30 hours, and they get to pick their opponents. They play the same 6 holes every time, but the hole-design changes after each round to keep it interesting. The first 15 golfers have already been chosen, and Anna is hoping to get enough votes to win the final spot.

She turned pro in 2004, and was invited to join the LPGA in 2007, and now has a full-time tour card. The 28-year-old has modeled since she was 16, when she was a finalist for a cover contest for an Australian magazine.

Voting closes March 14 for the Mojo6 Tournament's 16th lucky lady. Check out Anna's web site and vote here.
