Some big names are coming to Rhode Island to tee off in the Jeffrey Osborne Celebrity Classic Golf Tournament.
Osborne is the Grammy–nominated musician known for songs including, "On the Wings of Love". He's also a Rhode Island native.
Today, he was at Saint Mary's Home for Children in Providence to promote the charity tournament. He started the giving, by handing over $5,000 to Saint Mary's.
Osborne said, "It's all about children, the arts. We're also concerned with those heart–felt organizations in the community.
Golfers at the tournament will play for five charities. Last year, it raised $400,000 for local non–profits.
