KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine — Former President George H.W. Bush has lined up some big names in New England sporting history for his golf tournament this summer in Maine.

The 10th Bush Celebrity Golf Classic at the Cape Arundel Golf Club will include Boston Celtics two-time champ and MVP Dave Cowens, Hall-of-Fame defenseman Ray Bourque of the Boston Bruins and three-time Red Sox all-star Luis Tiant.

The golf tournament raises money for Gary’s House, which provides a home-away-from-home for people with family members being treated at Portland’s Mercy Hospital.

Bush always manages to get big names. In the past, he has lured former President Bill Clinton, former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Tiant is a repeat visitor, having participated in 2010.
