What began as an annual golf tournament fundraiser evolved, in 2020, into Field Day ForKids.By expanding the event to include tennis, pickleball, yoga, a two-mile walk and a Par 3, friends and supporters from around the region are set to gather at Cedar Point Club in Suffolk Thursday, Sept. 22 to raise critical funds for ForKids work supporting families living in poverty across Hampton Roads.
The presenting sponsors for 2022 Field Day ForKids are Mary and Louis Haddad. They are joined by 60 other sponsors, including Birdsong Peanuts, TowneBank, Duke Automotive, Cross Realty and Saunders, Matthews & Pfitzner, PLLC.
The event has been important in raising community awareness about ForKids’ impact in Western Tidewater. Each year, attendance has seen great growth, while participants go on to become volunteers, monetary and in-kind donors, and advocates for the ForKids mission of creating pathways out of poverty.
