MENDOTA HEIGHTS, Minn. — The swings and shots weren't quite the level of a PGA major tournament, but the golfers on this day are professionals at making major differences.
The Bohannon Group hosted its 13th annual golf tournament at Mendakota Country Club last month to benefit Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway's Lead The Way Foundation for a fifth straight year.
The event raised more than $100,000 for the fifth year in a row to continue to support programs that help critically and chronically ill children and their families.
The Lead The Way Foundation uses the financial support for the Chad's Locker programs to establish electronic educational and entertainment devices, host a luncheon for mothers of sick children, provide unique "Field of Dreams" experiences and other initiatives.

"The Bohannon Group has been such a great relationship for us and our foundation," Greenway said. "They do such an unbelievable job of running this golf tournament, and we're the beneficiary. It's really been an integral part of the things we've been able to do for a number of years. They've turned into great friends and they're a great family. We're just happy to be part of it."
Tim Bohannon said his family has enjoyed partnering with the Greenways and is impressed by "the work that Chad and Jenni do in the community and the willingness to give back."
"What's really cool is the values alignment," Bohannon said. "When you see how humble that he is and they are as a family, it lines up with our family values."
The scramble tournament lasts just one day but allows for differences to be made year round by Greenway, a three-time winner of the Vikings Community Man of the Year award.
