Twenty-five teams of golfers headed out at a shotgun start the morning of Sept. 6, to support the mission of Minnesota Log A Load for Kids.
Pokegama Lake served as a beautiful backdrop for the 23rd annual Log A Load for Kids Golf Tournament held at Pokegama Golf Course in Grand Rapids.
Logging business owners, timber industry businesses, timber and paper mills and local business professionals joined together to support the mission of Log A Load for Kids, netting more than $11,000 for Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare. Ray’s Sport & Cycle in Grand Rapids provided a four-wheeler and sponsored the Hole-in-One prize on hole No. 17. One golfer came within inches of the hole. Next year!
Log A Load for Kids Chair, Chris Martland with SAPPI Fine Paper, said, “With another successful tournament behind us, we thank all of the holes sponsors, teams, volunteers, Pokegama Grill owners and staff, and Pokegama Golf Course management and staff. No matter the weather or outcome, this is always a fun event for the golfers and benefits a great cause.”
