2020 CVS HEALTH CHARITY CLASSIC GOES VIRTUAL
Event Series Announces 2020 Virtual Giving Campaign and Unveils 2021 Event Dates
WOONSOCKET, Rhode Island (September 2, 2020) – The CVS Health Charity Classic will hold a virtual event series this year, maintaining the mission of the Charity Classic to support nonprofit partners in Southern New England. This September, members of the community will have the opportunity to lend direct support to the Charity Classic’s long tradition of giving back to the local community. The virtual campaign will include donation opportunities, an exciting silent auction and a unique Crave RI celebration recognizing the strength of the area’s culinary community.
“Now more than ever, we are committed to building healthier communities. The Charity Classic provides critical support to our nonprofit partners who have continued to advance their missions while working to help mitigate the impact of the pandemic,” said Eileen Howard Boone, Tournament Chairperson. “Our community’s ongoing commitment to the Charity Classic’s mission will help ensure that even though we have to be physically distant this year, our support is felt across the communities we serve.”
New this year, community members will have access to virtually bid on more than 50 exclusive auction items including foursomes at some of Rhode Island’s most pristine private courses, at-home virtual cooking and wine tasting experiences, and sports memorabilia from top athletes including past Celebrity Pro-Am participant Tim Wakefield. The Crave RI community will participate in a seven-day celebration during which local restaurants, such as Matunuck Oyster Bar and Diego’s, will offer featured menu items for dine in or take out, and top Rhode Island brands, such as Granny Squibb’s, Gastros and The Backyard Food Company, will offer online Crave RI discounts for the community.
The Charity Classic is pleased to announce the Event Series will return in 2021, kicking off Thursday, June 24 and concluding Monday, June 28, 2021.
