Last week former LSU and NBA players Shaquille O’Neal and LSU Coach Johnny Jones came together in support of Louisiana flood relief with the Shaq-Johnny Jones Golf Classic. The sold out event raised $200,000 for the cause, The Advocate reports.
“This really speaks volumes about what we were able to do here,” Jones said, according to The Advocate. “To raise $200,000 in a single day, that is an amount of money that can really help people affected by this tragedy.”
Former LSU golfers and current PGA Tour players were present at the event, which was held in Springfield, Louisiana.
