Evening Gala 1800-2300

Non-profit Oliver Hazard Perry Rhode Island is celebrating its 200-foot square-rigged Tall Ship SSV Oliver Hazard Perry

 with a fundraising gala at the Newport Shipyard. The event will pay tribute to Rhode Island’s official Sailing Education Vessel; and honor the organization’s three shipyard partners – Newport Shipyard, Senesco Marine and New England Boatworks – which have demonstrated the outstanding quality of Rhode Island’s skilled marine trades. Throughout the evening, guests can participate in a live and silent auction all while enjoying cocktails, dinner and dessert.   SV Mystic, the 180 ft square topsail schooner which is our platform for our 2014 programs, will be dockside and open for visits. Proceeds from the night will go toward the organization’s educational programs.

Tickets must be purchased in advance and are not available at the door. SOLD OUT!  thank you for your interest and support!
