Niswonger Children’s Hospital Set to Host Largest Fundraiser of the Year

Children’s healthcare in our region will soon get a boost in the form of championship golf, a legendary singer – and a lot of family fun!

The World Long Drive event kicks off at 8 a.m. On Sunday, Aug. 12, with the Tennessee Big Shots men’s preliminary rounds at Cattails at Meadowview in Kingsport. While watching world-class golfers hit 400-yard long drives, spectators and their families can enjoy food trucks, music and other activities.

Later that evening in Greeneville, Smoky Robisnon will put on a special performance at the Niswonger Performing arts center. The concert starts at 7:30 p.m.

The Niswonger Children’s Hospital Classic is presented by the Ballad Health Foundation and is the Children’s hospital’s largest annual fundraiser. To learn more about the Classic and the Tennessee Big Shots drive competition, please visit
