The oil and gas industry is booming in our state and 5 News told you about the workers out in the field. But what you may not realize, just like every organization, is there are people behind the scenes. In this case, they're called landmen. These landmen, or the business people of drilling put-on a charity golf event Thursday for WVU Children's Hospital.
The Michael Late Benedum Chapter of the American Association of Professional Landmen hosted the event for the past four years, raising $70,000. This year, they raised $30,000.
"It's good for us to give back to the communities, locally because we work around here. So you figure landmen in the oil and gas business with how much money we make can go back to the local community," said Steve Carr. 
Aaron Yost is the chairman of this event and has a special connection with WVU Children's Hospital. 
"My wife went to ruby, delivered early and the hospital staff was unbelievable and they really saved our child's life. That's how I got involved in it and try to give back to the hospital," said Yost. 
Yost said he's so grateful for all the people who helped out and participated.
The event was sponsored by Top Notch Land Service, XTO Energy, Brighton Resources, Jackson Kelly, Burleson Law Firm, Beckmen, Cherkas Associates Law Firm, and EQT.
