The winner will be announced on Monday 30 June.
The competition, which unites the financial services industry and celebrities, takes place on Tuesday 15 July at the prestigious West Course of the Wentworth Golf Club in Surrey in order to raise funds to provide coaches for handicapped and underprivileged children.
The golf extravaganza, sponsored by Bloomberg TV, is followed by a gala dinner and cabaret in the glamorous surroundings of the Wentworth Ballroom, a time for all participants to either reminisce on their glorious drive on the 8th, or their triple-bogey on the 15th.
In previous years such celebrities who have pittied their skill against the financial services finest include Jimmy Tarbuck, Mike Reid, Sir Henry Cooper, Sir Bobby Charlton, Sir Geoff Hurst, Ronnie Corbett, Jasper Carrott, Russ Abbot and Tim Brooke Taylor.
Those who have already signed up to tee-off against this year's celebs include BFS Investments, Govett Investments, Legg Mason, Lloyds TSB and Microsoft.
However there are still three team sponsorships available at a cost of £2,700 each and individual charity donations also welcome.
These cheques should be sent to the chairman of the event and chief executive of InvaTrust Consultancy, David Harris and be made payable to the 'FSI Sunshine Golf Classic' and sent to David Harris, FSI Sunshine Golf Classic, 70 Barnfield Place, London E14 9YB.
Last year, BFS were victorious in the team competition led by Roger de Courcey and world-cup hat-trick hero Sir Geoff Hurst. Dave Jessup hit the days longest drive and Framlington's Paul Branigan got his tee-shot closest to the pin on the par-three second hole.
The money raised from the event goes to supporting charities who provide support for less fortunate children to benefit from accessing their community, by providing coaches.
Mr Leberet, principle of Kisharon School, London which received a coach last year, said it allowed some of its pupils to access local facilities, thus building up their experience of independent living skills.
Harris said when participants see the excitement of the children as they climb into their new coaches, it brings home what a difference the event is making to their lives.
The Variety Club of Great Britain Golfing Society was formed in 1965 with the sole object of raising funds for the purchase of Sunshine Coaches for handicapped and under-privileged children. In 1999, 2000 and 2001 the golf society raised around £1 million each year to provide coaches to schools and hospitals throughout the United Kingdom.
Bloomberg TV is currently running a competition on TV, the winners of which will also compete in the tournament.
If you wish to make a donation or buy a sponsorship, cheques should be sent to the chairman of the event and chief executive of InvaTrust Consultancy, David Harris, payable to the 'FSI Sunshine Golf Classic' and sent to David Harris, FSI Sunshine Golf Classic, 70 Barnfield Place, London E14 9YB.
