Golf fans got to see some local celebrities in action while benefiting a good cause.

Several local celebrities, including former Vol Erik Ainge, teed off in Tuesday's tournament at the Copper Cellar 19th Hole.

Money from the event benefited the First Tee of Greater Knoxville. It will help pay for a college scholarship for kids who participate in the program.

Organizers hoped to raise $8,000.
