St. Jude's Charity Patrick Warburton Golf Tournament Soiree with ME...lotsa photos

The fun continues at the Warburton Celebrity Golf Tournament. Saturday celebrities and their partners hit the links at the JW Mariott and Classic Club after a Soiree and auction.

The annual event bringing 75 celebrities to the desert to raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Actor Chace Crawford working on his swing on the driving range.

"I'm trying to improve my golf game and it's a sad state of affairs. So we'll see," Crawford said.

And the Big Bang Theory's Kunal Nayyar telling us he might have rocked a little too hard last night.

"I'm always in bed at 10 p.m. and last night I was out a lot later. But I got to see a lot of people that I love and look up to. And music that I grew up on, so for me it was a dream come true," Nayyar said.

"St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, even though its far away in Memphis, everyone is touched and moved by what the hospital does. And the hospital has been there for members of this community," Warburton said.

Every year organizers hope to exceed the previous year's donations. Last year the event raised enough money to run the hospital for a day.

"Over the last seven years, we've raised a total of about $7.2 million, $7.3 million. And last year alone we raised $2.2 million but that's about what it costs a day to keep the doors of the hospital open," Warburton said.

Warburton said he hopes to raise more than $2.2 million this year. The event continues throughout the weekend with tomorrow night's Jam Session and Golf Tournament on Saturday and Sunday.
