ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Albany pro golfer was in town this week to raise money for storm victims. 

Josh Broadaway hosted his 16th annual Cross-handed Classic: Guitars and Golf.

More than 120 golfers teed off Friday morning at the Doublegate Country Club.

And tonight, folks gathered for a storm benefit concert at the State Theatre. 

For the past eight years, Broadaway has donated the proceeds from both events to a local charity. 

This year, organizers teamed up with Mission Change to raise money for storm victims.

"This year with everything that happened, we just thought of, my parents are friends with Ladonna from Mission Change and they just came and said this is what we need to do for Albany. They've gone through a lot with the storms," said Josh Broadaway.

"Every little bit helps and we're just hoping tonight is going to be a great night, a great turnout, and lots of funds are going to be raised so that we can continue the efforts for the storm relief," said Mission Change Co-Founder Ladonna Urick. 

The concert is at the State Theatre at 313 Pine Avenue.

Tickets are $20 at the door.
