Evening Gala 1800-2300Non-profit Oliver Hazard Perry Rhode Island is celebrating its 200-foot square-rigged Tall Ship SSV Oliver Hazard Perry’s first summer underway with a fundraising gala at the Newport Shipyard. The event will pay tribute to the completion of 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 tour the ship (which will be dockside) and participate in a live and silent auction all while enjoying cocktails, dinner and dessert. Proceeds from the night will go toward the organization’s educational programs.
Tickets must be purchased in advance, and will sell out fast! For more information contact Carol Hill, 401-841-0080
