Newport Non-profits Combine Philanthropy and Fashion for Summer 2015

When choosing what do and where to go this summer, it’s hard to pass up a good party—especially if it’s for a good cause.

Here’s a quick round-up of some of the most fun and fashionable summer benefits to check out in Newport:
Friday, June 26, 2015
Hosted by Child & Family & StyleWeek Northeast 
I have volunteered at Au Courant every year and it’s been a great event to not only check out the latest from emerging fashion designers in New England, but, more importantly, support one of the oldest organizations dedicated to building stronger communities by building strong families.

Hosted by Angela Moore and The Preservation Society of Newport County 
If you’ve ever been on a mansion tour on any of the Preservation Society properties, the proceeds from your ticket help keep the mansions and their grounds beautiful (not to mention architecturally sound). The ticket proceeds for the Angela Moore Fashion Show & Brunch will also benefit the Preservation Society, as well as feature an exhibit showcasing iconic fashions from 1945 through the present. 

Saturday, July 18, 2015
Hosted by The Newport Art Museum and Arts Association
I have never been to a fundraiser for the Newport Art Museum, but every time I see pictures, I always regret not attending. If you can’t stay for the entire evening, separate tickets are also available for dinner, main celebration, and the after party. 
Saturday, July 25, 2015
Hosted by the Aquidneck Island Land Trust
It’s a big year for the Aquidneck Land Trust—they’re celebrating 25 years of preserving open space in Newport, Middletown and Portsmouth. I may or may not be extremely biased in saying that this is an important non-profit for Aquidneck Island—I’m on the Advancement Committee for ALT—but it doesn’t change the fact that making efforts to save our local environment also saves our communities on a deeper level. 
Tuesday, August 4, 2015
Hosted by The Confetti Foundation
If I am correct, this is the only organization in this post that is hosting its inaugural summer philanthropic event. Essentially, The Confetti Foundation holds birthday parties for children in hospitals to brighten their day. It’s sure to become one of the regular Newport summer fundraisers.
Saturday, August 8, 2015
Hosted by newportFILM 
newportFILM is known for two things—great movies and great parties. If the success of their Bollywood Friendraiser this spring is any indication of how the summer benefit will go, this is on the must-list for your Newport summer.
