OKLAHOMA CITY -- Actor Mark Harmon is in Oklahoma City this weekend to raise money for local charities.

The star of CBS's NCIS has been coming to Oklahoma for nine years to raise money with his celebrity baseball game. This year the weekend benefits the Oklahoma City Indian Clinic and the Ronald McDonald House.

 "They are helping to raise funds so we can look at building another Ronald McDonald house and providing more places for families and their children to stay," said Tamara Gilkey with the Ronald McDonald House.

Harmon toured the house and met with the families that call this their home away from home.

The families stay for free while their child or grandchild receives medical treatment.

"We enjoy our time here and come here and do good work, but this is the part we enjoy," Harmon said.

"As long as you keep asking us back we will come."
