LOG A LOAD FOR KIDS
MAKES A MILLION!
ON OCTOBER 19, 2017, the 23rd Annual Tommy
Usher Log A Load For Kids Golf Classic celebrated
the $1 million mark for donations made to the UF
Health Shands Children's Hospital in Gainesville, FL.
The tournament, played at the Chiefland Golf
and Country Club, fielded 124 golfers.
"The focus of this event is to raise awareness of
and money for the Children's Miracle Network," said
event organizer Lynetta Usher Griner. "All the fun people have while they're here is just an added bonus."
The tournament is named in honor of Lynetta's
late brother, who was killed in a boating accident.
Because of his passion for forestry, his love of children and his well-known sense of fun, the tournament is a perfect way to honor him.
In a nod to surpassing the million dollar mark,
this year's tournament featured chances for two
golfers to win $1 million each. There were also
prizes for the lowest gross and net scoring teams,
the closest to the pin, the longest drive, the longest putt and a random drawing for a set of clubs
and bag valued at $2,500.
"It takes a great team of volunteers to make the
tournament happen," said Griner. "We are all thrilled
to be part of an effort that makes such an impact
on the lives of so many children and their families."
Since joining the Log A Load campaign efforts
in 1995, Florida's forestry community and friends
have raised more than $2 million for hospitals
associated with the Children's Miracle Network
in Florida.

Log A Load For Kids is a nationwide giving campaign through which
the forestry community contributes to local hospitals affiliated with the
Children's Miracle Network (CMN) to provide medical care to children
whose families cannot pay for treatment. For more information, please
