The Boys & Girls Clubs of Newport County is organizing its first Newport Yacht Rendezvous in the Rhode Island port city.

The two-day event, which will be held Aug. 14 and 15, will include a SuperYacht Hop at the Newport Shipyard and a dinner and dance party at one of Newport’s Gilded Age mansions, Rosecliff.

“We’re thrilled to host this SuperYacht Hop event as one of the many ways in which the community can support the Boys & Girls Club,” event co-chair and Boys & Girls Club board member Kim Herrlinger said in a statement. “The Yacht Hop is a great complement to our existing dinner dance while celebrating the yachting community and all of Newport.”

The inaugural festivities for Newport Nights will start at 6:30 p.m. on Aug. 14 at the Newport Shipyard, where guests will enjoy hopping aboard luxury yachts from Rhode Island and beyond.

On Aug. 15, the party continues at 7 p.m. at the Rosecliff Mansion as guests return with their dancing shoes to party the night away at the 35th Annual Boys & Girls Club Dinner Dance.

Reservations are required. For information, contact Catherine Mureddu at cmureddu@bgcnewport.org or (401) 847-6927, Ext. 5

All proceeds benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs of Newport County, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping children, teens and families. Programs at the Boys & Girls Club help promote character and leadership, health and wellness, and education and career development.
