The fourth annual Cox Community Golf Tournament benefiting the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund will be held at the Coto de Caza Golf & Racquet Club this Monday.

The nearly sold-out event aims to help injured Marines and their loved ones overcome financial hardships.

The tournament will feature silent and live auctions, with prizes such as a one-week stay in a five-bedroom condominium in Villa Los Cabos; a three-night getaway to the Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara; tickets to Cox’s private suite at Angel Stadium; and tickets to Cox's suite to see a Ducks game at the Honda Center.

Marine Corps veteran and "Full Metal Jacket" star R. Lee Hermey, among other celebrities, is also expected to attend the event, which is run by Cox Cares, the company's nonprofit organization that supports local programs and offers services for those in need throughout O.C., North Camp Pendleton and Palos Verdes.

Individual golfers can register for $325, while groups of four run $1,300 and dinner guests cost $100.

Those unable to attend the tournament may also still donate by buying a $10 golf ball for a chance to win $2,000 in a helicopter ball drop.

The tournament has raised more than $175,000 for the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund with the help of sponsors such as Ketel One Vodka, Chick-fil-A Foothill Ranch, Canyon Fireside Grill, C&M Communiqué, Baja Fresh, 4 Copas Tequila, OC Gazette, Volunteer Center Orange County, Hanna’s, Big Band Networks, Spa Gregorie’s and Jarhead Red.
