Nearly 100 golfers turned out Friday despite steamy conditions at Crab Orchard Golf Club in Carterville for the annual John A. Logan College Foundation Golf Classic in an effort to raise money for students in need.

This year’s event raised nearly $15,000 or about double the amount raised a year ago. Mayfield-Ky.-based Mid-Continent University served as the event’s title sponsor.

“We had 24 four-person teams participate,” said JALC Foundation Executive Director Staci Bynum. “I am so appreciative of all our sponsors. A big thank you to Mid-Continent for their efforts. We look forward to working with them in the future.”

Prizes included a chance to win a Harley Davidson motorcycle from Black Diamond Harley in Marion and two round-trip airfare tickets from Cape Air. All golfers were also treated to lunch and dinner.

“I am so excited about the future of the JALC Foundation,” Bynum said. “We have big plans and are looking forward to introducing some new fundraising events in the months ahead.”
