About the CVS Health Charity Classic 

Since its inception, the CVS Health Charity Classic has donated more than $23 million for Southern New England non-profit organizations that provide vital funding to a range of programs serving children and families.

Over the last several years, the CVS Health Charity Classic has shrunk from a three-day golf tournament (including the pro-am), to a one day tournament, while adding the CRAVE RI food festival and keeping the pro-am.
