Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz held his fifth annual golf tournament over the weekend, and with the help of some of his celebrity friends the event was the most successful to date in its effort to raise money that provides critical care to children in the Dominican Republic.

The Classic directly benefits the David Ortiz Children’s Fund, which was founded in 2006 in partnership with the International Hospital for Children (now known as the World Pediatric Project) and annually draws an impressive list of participants. This year's group included gold medal-winning gymnast Aly Raisman, Saturday Night Live cast members Rachel Dratch and Seth Myers, six members of the 2004 World Series champion Red Sox, and Yankee second baseman Robinson Cano among a collection of baseball players both active and retired.

The most lucrative auction item was tickets to a taping of SNL (donated by Myers), which went for $13,000. A lunch date with Heidi Watney and a private gymnastics lesson with Raisman were also big-money items, drawing bids of almost $10,000 apiece.

Courtesy of Chaz Niell, here are a few photos from the event.
