In a tough year for charity, Billy Andrade and Brad Faxon had a record year in New England.

The Andrade-Faxon Charities for Children distributed more than $321,135 to 52 organizations that serve at-risk children in Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts.

Money comes from their CVS Charity Classic in the summer and from individual contributions. They have awarded more than $4 million since they created the charity in 1994.

"These grants will help meet the basic needs of our community's children," Faxon said. "We try to lessen the burden of hunger and illness so kids can be kids."
