LudaDay Weekend is officially here.

Each year since 2005, Ludacris and the Ludacris Foundation host activities and events to bring together the Atlanta community over Labor Day Weekend in dedication to social service and responsibility.

Money raised over the weekend will support the work of the Ludacris Foundation and other charities benefiting children. The foundation was established in 2001 by Grammy Award-winning artist, entrepreneur and actor Chris “Ludacris” Bridges as a platform to serve families, young people and the community.

Each year, the LudaDay festivities get bigger and better. This year, the weekend will be jam-packed with exciting events beginning today, Friday, Aug. 31, through Sunday, Sept. 2.

The weekend teed off at 7:30 Friday morning with a celebrity golf tournament featuring a host of stars, special guests and Ludacris‘ friends, including Lance Gross, Lou Will,  Terrance J and Micheal B. Jordan, in Hampton, Georgia.

Friday night is Game Night.  Woody McClain of BET’s “The Bobby Brown Story” kicks off the competition at 8 p.m. at The Gathering Spot in Atlanta.

Here is a lineup for the rest of the weekend’s events that you won’t want to miss.
