Debut Yacht Rendezvous Resounding Success

Modeled after the annual Fort Lauderdale Boys and Girls Club yacht hop annual fundraiser, the Newport club kicked up its own gala by debuting a two-night event that showcased two of Newport's most prized attributes – the waterfront and the historical elegance of the Newport mansions.

On the first night, guests had the opportunity to kick off their shoes and board five sleek yachts at the Newport Shipyard for cocktails and other culinary delectables. For the second night, hundreds of Newport Boys and Girls Clubs supporters donned summer chic attire for a night at Rosecliff. The opening reception on the terrace was followed by a sit-down dinner in the ballroom and dancing under the stars.

The mission of the Boys and Girls Club is to inspire and enable all youth, especially those who need it most, to reach their full potential. Their motto, "Great Futures Start Here," was embraced by the efforts of co-chairs Kim Herrlinger, Carol O'Malley, Sherri Grace, Piper Quinn and everyone on the committee.
