Golf tournament Saturday to benefit Ireland Nugent

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Here's your chance to help out a little girl whose story you may have heard.

Little Ireland Nugent was severely injured in a lawn mower accident three weeks ago, and dozens of golfers will hit the links Saturday in Tarpon Springs to help her family with the medical bills.

The 50 Legs Charity Golf Tournament is at Tarpon Woods Golf Club in Palm Harbor at 1 p.m. It's to help Nugent get new prosthetic feet. Doctors had to amputate them following the accident.

The new prosthetics could cost upwards of $50,000. Her family says she's already had two more surgeries this week to help fix some skin grafts.

If you'd like to register for the tournament, you still can at http://50legs.org/.
