Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin joined celebrities and past and current athletes on the links Tuesday for the 10th annual ESPY Celebrity Golf Classic in Los Angeles.

The event, which helps raise money for the V Foundation for Cancer Research, included Brandi Chastain, Jerome Bettis, Jalen Rose, Eddie George, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Jeff Daniels, Tony Dovolani, Julius Erving, Gary Carter and Vince Young. Combined with ESPN Radio's sixth annual "Don't Give Up ESPYs V Foundation Auction," which ended on Friday, raised $1.63 million in net proceeds for The V Foundation for Cancer Research.

Since its inception, the two events have raised more than $11.7 million.

"Cancer is such a serious disease; it's important to give back," Austin said. "It's great to give back in a way that's so casual. It's easy and it's fun to come out here. It's good to be out here and hanging out on such a good day with beautiful people."

Speaking of hanging with beautiful people, the golf course isn't the only place where Austin has celebrated ESPY week. He also showed up Monday night at the fourth annual Sports Dream Celebrity Poker and Pool Party at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles. And, yes, Kim Kardashian was with him.
