The Middlesboro Ladies Golf Association raised over $1,000 for its inaugural holiday gift drive.

This holiday season, members of the Ladies Golf Association hosted a gift drive for local families in need. The members donated over 50 gifts that consisted of toys, clothes, gift cards, and candy. “I was very pleased and overwhelmed by all the gifts we received,” said association member Melissa Turner. “Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for participating and for the gifts- it will bring joy to many families who might otherwise have missed out.”

The Middlesboro Ladies Golf Association plans on launching an annual ‘Christmas in July’ Tournament to benefit their newly established holiday initiative, with the mission to make a positive impact on the lives of local families in need and hopes to brighten the holidays for many.
