Shaq, Johnny Jones giving to flood relief through golf tournament

Legendary LSU basketball star Shaquille O’Neal and current LSU basketball head coach Johnny Jones will donate the proceeds from the 2016 Shaquille O’Neal & Johnny Jones Golf Classic to Louisiana flood relief, Nola.com reports.

“There were some questions as to whether or not we should even have the tournament this year because of the flooding,” Jones said, according to Nola.com. “I talked to Shaquille and we decided not only should we still have the tournament, but we should donate all the proceeds to help the people affected by the flood.”

The Golf Classic, presented by Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital, will be on Sept. 16 at Carter Plantation in Springfield.
