On Friday, September 30th Weyerhaeuser hosted its eight annual golf tournament to benefit University of Georgia’s Langdale Center for Forest Business (LCFB). Sixty-five degrees and sunny made for a fun day at The Georgia Club for all 144 players from the forestry industry. On behalf of the LCFB, we thank the twenty corporate sponsors, in particular the Tournament Host, Weyerhaeuser, as well as three Tournament Sponsors – Jones Lang LaSalle, Drax Biomass and WestRock. The event raised $83,890 for the LCFB to support graduate student assistantships, and travel.
A Thursday evening dinner at Flinchum’s Phoenix Banquet Hall in UGA’s Whitehall Forest kicked off the event. More than 90 industry professionals, Center for Forest Business Faculty and graduate students attended the Thursday evening cocktail hour and low-country boil. Weyerhaeuser employees and UGA graduate students volunteered Friday to facilitate a fun day for each of the 36 teams on the course. To conclude the two-day event, Weyerhaeuser hosted all forest business graduate students for dinner Friday evening to network, discuss career paths and express support for the industry-relevant curriculum and exposure the LCFB offers its students.
A sincere thanks to our sponsors, volunteers and participants!
