Benefitting the David Ortiz Children’s Fund, a non-profit organization that provides critical care services to children in need, the online auction is one part of the 3rd Annual David Ortiz Celebrity Golf Classic which takes place December 2-5, 2010 at Cap Cana in the Dominican Republic. As in the past many of Big Papi’s teammates and coaches are expected to attend this star-studded event, such as Terry Francona, Jonathan Papelbon, Dustin Pedroia, John Lackey, Daniel Bard, Jon Lester, and Tim Wakefield. Other MLB players slated to participate include: Andre Ethier, Johnny Damon, Alex Rodriguez, Ryan Howard, and Robinson Cano.

David Ortiz Children’s Fund began in 2006 as a way for David to help children in his home country of the Dominican Republic. In 2009, the Fund expanded its life-saving mission to New England, helping to bring critical care services to children in need through a partnership with Massachusetts General Hospital.
