“I have always believed that cars are our business, but kids are our future,” said Barker. “For that reason, many of the charities that benefit from the golf tournament are focused on the youth of Hampton Roads.”
The foundation supports organizations dedicated to the advancement of youth such as An Achievable Dream Academy, Judeo-Christian Outreach Center, CHKD, I Need A Lighthouse, Access College Foundation, VB Home Now, Boys and Girls Clubs and Sugar Plum Bakery.
Nearly 100% of the proceeds go towards the charities, which are always the main focus. Charles Barker Champions for Kids is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organization classified as a public foundation.
