— One of the largest charity golf and tennis tournaments in the country winds up today. It's the 24th annual Duke Children's Classic.

Big names from all over were a part of the action Saturday including comedian Jeff Foxworthy, and singer Pat Boone. Each year the tournament raises hundreds of thousands of dollars for Duke Children's Hospital.

Organizers say that over the years the event has generated more than $8.5 million.
