Caddie127: barbasolchampionship.com/charities/ Nobody Should Walk Alone”

The Barbasol Championship’s charitable arm, Caddie127, connects a biblical connotation from James 1:27 “to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” Just as Caddies and their players support one another, so will Caddie127 support philanthropic organizations that benefit and empower women and children. Caddie127 has named All God’s Children, Kentucky Children’s Hospital (UK Healthcare), the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Refuge for Women, and the Woodhill Community Center as their 2019 charitable partners.

All God’s Children: kyagc.org/

Through Christ-centered ministries, our non-profit organization offers safe, temporary shelter and programs which address their physical, emotional, education and spiritual needs. By offering sufficient support and life skills, we believe that young women can move beyond challenging circumstances to become loving parents and productive citizens.

Make A Wish Foundation: oki.wish.org

Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Our vision is to grant the wish of every eligible child.

Refuge for Women: refugeforwomen.org/
