1_NEWPORTSHOWCHARITY

Newport Exhibition Group announced that its charity partner for this year’s Newport International Boat Show is Better Bay Alliance. The alliance will receive a $1,000 donation and complimentary exhibit space at the show, which is scheduled for Sept. 15-18 in Newport, R.I.

Better Bay Alliance is an educational nonprofit dedicated to enhancing the boating experience and promoting safety on Narragansett Bay, the exhibition group said in a statement. It collaborates with government, corporate and private stakeholders, and coordinates with yacht clubs and other boating enthusiasts.

“Our show and the Better Bay Alliance share a common mission in that we both seek to inform and educate the boating public,” said Lisa Knowles, show director of Newport Exhibition Group. “The beauty of the Narragansett Bay is a welcomed backdrop to our show but is also an attraction for the millions of visitors that come to Newport every year. We can’t think of a more worthy local cause than an organization that promotes better boating and respect for all that the bay has to offer.”
