Celebrities will tee off later this week for a very good cause.

They are in Lexington for the annual Children's Charity Classic golf tournament.

The event kicked off Monday with a check presentation.

Organizers said 26 groups received checks for a total of $426,000.

The money was raised in last year's tournament. 

Lexington native and former Cincinnati Red Doug Flynn is among the big names playing this year.

Flynn said, "It is the most rewarding thing that I'm a part of. And I get a chance to do a lot of really neat things, but when you can do something in your own hometown with people that you love, and with your friends and all of you work together in harmony to give back, I think that says an awful lot."
