BARRINGTON, R.I. (WPRI) — Thousands of people will converge on Rhode Island Country Club June 26 to 28 for the CVS Health Charity Classic golf tournament.
Of course, this premiere event will feature lots of golf action, but you don’t need to be a die-hard fan to attend. There are plenty of fun activities “outside the ropes” for everyone to enjoy.
This year, even if you’re not able to attend the event, you can experience some of the festivities online thanks to WPRI 12 and Facebook Live.
We will broadcast live several times on our Facebook page throughout the tournament on Monday and Tuesday.
