AKRON --  Firestone Country Club is preparing to welcome golf's best players.

From August 1-5, players will tee off at the World Golf Championships Bridgestone Invitational.

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are expected to be among the participants.

But this event is more than just an opportunity to see some of the best players in the world.

All the money raised will go to local charities. Last year, nearly $1 million was raised.

Anyone under 18 years old and members of the military and their families will also be able to watch for free.

Tickets are $20, but less if you pre-order them.

Meanwhile, the World Golf Championships Bridgestone Invitational is also teaming up with the Susan G. Komen Foundation for a charity 5k run in Akron.

That will take place on July 29.
