Get your tickets to this year’s White Party before they’re gone.

We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but summer 2018 is rapidly coming to a close for Newport. Sure, it’s hot AF right this minute…but back to school sales are everywhere and rumor has it that pumpkin spice everything is already staged in the back rooms of the nation’s Starbucks. That doesn’t mean that this summer isn’t going to go out without a bang! The Newport White Party is happening September 1 and you really want to get your tickets NOW.

Seven years ago, a couple of Newporters, Adam Manoli and WPRI Sports Reporter JP Smollins, decided to have a party. At first it was held in their apartment. Every year since it has grown, getting more and more involved. More people lead to bigger venues.

For the past two years, it has taken place on the marina lawn of the Newport Harbor Hotel. This spot gives revellers an amazing view of Newport Harbor, especially as the sun sets.

Giving Back

As much fun as it is, the Newport White Party does have a more serious mission. Each year, proceeds from the party are given to charity for the causes Newporters care about.

The two main causes are the Heather Abbott Foundation, which needs no introduction, and Boston Strong New York Tough, a charity which provides support to families dealing with financial challenges in the course of treating a loved one’s illness.

Silent Auction Items Wanted

A big part of the fundraising at this event each year is the silent auction. Local businesses generously offer items and services and the organizers greatly appreciate everything everyone has donated in the past.

If you own or manage a local business and would like make a donation to the party, message the White Party on their Facebook Page.

You don’t want to miss the Newport White Party 2018!

So while you’re deciding on your favorite white outfit…
