Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic at Walt Disney World

The 41st Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic will be taking place this week, October 20-23, at Walt Disney World's Palm and Magnolia Courses. Among the featured golfers playing this year are the PGA TOUR's top players, Luke Donald and Webb Simpson. I'm volunteering at the golf course this week, as we're getting ready for the tournament, so I thought I'd share some photos.

As in years past, the Wine & Dine Walk will be offered -- this year around the putting green of Disney's Magnolia Golf Course. Inspired by the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, specialty locations will offer culinary pairings of tapas-sized appetizers, entrees, desserts and wines especially for the event. Here's an idea of how they'll be set up.

The two-day pro-am field, which will compete Thursday and Friday of tournament week on both the Palm and Magnolia courses, is set to be headlined by Head Coach of the Boston Celtics Doc Rivers, former Super Bowl star Jerome "The Bus" Bettis (Pittsburgh Steelers), ex-NBA player Alonzo Mourning (Miami Heat), Celtics' sharp-shooter Ray Allen, Tampa Bay Rays star Johnny Damon, future NFL Hall of Famer Derrick Brooks (Tampa Bay Bucs) and popular MLB player Brian Wilson (SF Giants).
