Attend the Gala!


If you have never attended the gala, you’ll want to come to this one. It is so much fun! Fabulous music played by our wonderful Newport Jazz Band! Enjoy the food and drink while being vastly entertained by our interactive auctioneer. Laugh your way through an enjoyable evening while contributing to our community and impacting Newport High School arts and education. 

You can buy individual tickets by signing in (or making an account). Consider becoming a table captain where you fill a table of 10 with family and friends. This event is going to be a blast! 

We look forward to seeing you there!

Donate Items


We need your help to procure items for our live and silent auctions. We need gift cards from your favorite restaurants and stores as well as bottles of wine. Tickets and events are really popular. Do you have tickets to sports events, concerts, operas, the theater, or museum memberships that you could donate? How about donating vacation and travel items like time-shares, a round of golf, time in a vacation home, car rentals? Such items are often irresistible.

Get your kids involved. Can they donate a service like tutoring sessions or art classes? Could you offer something like a virtual cooking class or host a dinner?

The band kids will benefit from your generous contributions. Donate today!
