Our 2020 Gala & Auction is going ONLINE!

Due to the enormous impact COVID-19 is having on our community, our originally scheduled Gala & Auction scheduled for April 24th, 2020, at The Golf Club at Newcastle, has been cancelled. We will instead shift our event to an online auction.

Please plan to join us online in mid-April, from the comfort of your own home, to raise the paddle, bid on an item or two, and enjoy a sense of community – something we all need during this time! Stay tuned......MORE DETAILS COMING SOON on when and how you can join us for our forthcoming online auction!

For those of you who have already purchased tickets to the Gala, you should have already received an email from our Gala team, communicating how we can issue you a refund or turn your refund into a donation. If you you have not received that email from us, please contact us at newportgala@gmail.com so we can assist you.

All the best,
