Normally if an event is able to throw Justin Timberlake’s name onto something, the masses follow. But in the case of the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospital for Children Open, the pop star isn’t just throwing his name on something – he’s involved in every detail.

Timberlake is in his third year as the title sponsor of the event and has set his PGA Tour stop apart by donating the proceeds of the event to the Shriners Hospital.

The Shriners Open kicks off the festivities with a walk and youth clinic on Oct. 17 and several other events before rolling into a pro-am tournament on Oct. 20 featuring Timberlake himself and NFL Hall of Famers Jerry Rice and Emmitt Smith. The actual PGA Tournament begins Oct. 21 and typically yields some of the top golfers on the Tour not named Tiger Woods (not that he’s in any hurry to return to Vegas).

 Adding to the festivities, Timberlake will perform at Planet Hollywood on Oct. 23 in an event aptly titled Justin Timberlake and Friends. So far those friends include Sir Elton John, Christina Aguilera, Sean “Diddy” Combs and his new group Diddy-Dirty Money, Lady Antebellum, Salt-N-Pepa, Selena Gomez and T-Pain.

Anyone attending the concert (tickets start at $100) will also receive free admission to the Shriners Open.
