CVS Caremark Charity Classic delivers $1.3M to area charities

WOONSOCKET, R.I. -

More than $1.3 million was raised during this year's CVS Caremark Charity Classic.

Pro golfers Billy Andrade and Brad Faxon appeared Thursday at the tournament's annual check presentation ceremony at CVS Caremark headquarters in Woonsocket.

The money will be distributed among 81 local charities and nonprofit organizations.

"We bring all these great pros in to play. We play some golf. But today is the most important day and to be able to sit here and say that we've given over $17 million in 15 years, I think we pinch ourselves," Andrade said.

Andrade and Faxon also said they plan to continue holding the golf tournament at Rhode Island Country Club in Barrington for at least the next three years.

The 2014 tournament is scheduled for June 22 to 24.
