CVS/Caremark Charity Classic Parking Detail Volunteers, 2014 Volunteer of the Year

2014 Volunteers of The Year

CVS/Caremark Charity Classic, 15-Year Anniversary Public Parking Volunteers

The CVS/Caremark Charity Classic, now entering its 15th year, has raised millions of dollars for local charities. In exchange for managing the public parking detail of this 3-day annual event, CVS donates about $25,000 annually, with a total of over $450,000 since its inception.

The public parking detail is one of the most unglamorous aspects of the CVS Classic, but Save The Bay’s Seekonk Speedway parking detail has developed a devoted following. Our Speedway volunteers have become a close-knit “family.” Through their dedicated volunteer efforts, Save The Bay has received necessary funding which has helped the organization survive some of the toughest times. The 15th anniversary of the Classic seems the perfect opportunity to honor those volunteers who have faithfully served us year after year as public parking volunteers.

*Please note:  Be sure to access the Johnson & Wales University Harborside Campus through the main entrance on Harborside Blvd. Your GPS may suggest taking Ernest Street to JWU’s Shipyard Street entrance, but that route requires a key card for entry.  

From Route I-95 North or South, take Exit 18 (Thurbers Avenue). Head downhill on Thurbers Avenue to US Route 1A (Allens Avenue). Turn right onto Allens Ave. Continue southbound on Allens Ave. into Cranston, where Allens Ave. becomes Narragansett Blvd. Turn left onto Harborside Blvd. at the traffic light by the Shell gas station. Follow Harborside Blvd. through the Johnson & Wales Harborside Campus. At the end of Harborside Blvd., turn right onto Save The Bay Drive. Save The Bay Drive becomes a circular, one-way roadway as you approach the Bay Center. Parking is available in four guest lots after you pass the main building. Enter the building through the main entrance.
