newportFILM is an organization I am continually passionate about - despite living on the other coast. When I'm home, I make a point to attend their film events and think the ladies (and lad!) behind the non-profits' execution are doing some remarkable things for our community and culture in the Ocean State. With Andrea van Beuren and Terri Conners at the helm, the organization has grown immensely over the past few years with the continued support of passionate patrons and people who simply dig a good experience. newportFILM not only celebrates documentary film makers and their audiences, but the organization has the unique ability to curate memorable experiences in our backyard, at some of the most beautiful, iconic and historical outdoor (and indoor) landscapes. If you're passionate about the organization too, I encourage you to lend your support by making a donation of $50 at minimum. With your donation, your name will be entered into a raffle for a 7 night vacation in St. Barths with WIMCO Villas. (Think of how fabulous you'll feel in your bandeau top, sipping rosé on the beach of French St Barths, knowing you got there with the grace and goodness of your own heart)! The winner will be drawn on July 31st, so hop to it! Visit here for all the details.
Finally, be sure to buy your ticket to newportFILM's Summer Benefit, one of the best parties of the summer! The benefit is this Friday, July 18th at the International Tennis Hall of Fame.
