CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Monday marks the 16th annual Outback Steakhouse golf outing benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cincinnati.

Kicking off at noon, more than 200 golfers will play the courses at Kenwood Country Club to raise funds and awareness for the program.

Directly after the gold outing is the United Healthcare Gold Ball Drop for Kids. 1000 numbered balls are dropped from a crane and people who have "purchased" balls win cash prizes for a hole-in-one, closest to and furthest from the pin.

The event will be followed by a concert dubbed "Boomeroo." The band "The Mercy Men" will perform with special guest Bootsy Collins.

Food and drink courtesy of Outback Steakhouse will be available throughout the day and during "Boomeroo".

The concert is included in the price of the golf outing and is also open to the public for $30.
