The Star Kids Scholarship Program, Newport/Fall River, will host their annual gala on Saturday, May 5th, 2018 at Ochre Court in Newport, 5:00 PM - 9:00 PM. This year's gala will be a Kentucky Derby Party; come watch the races, in style, on a big screen! The event highlights include live blue grass music by The Bagmen, delicious Kentucky-style food, and a full open bar. Guest tickets are $125 if purchased by April 7th, and $150 if purchased after April 7th. Funds raised at the Kentucky Derby party will support the program's work of giving at-risk children in Newport County / Fall River the chance to realize their potential through education. The goal of Star Kids, founded by Dr. Timothy Flanigan in 2000, is to help at-risk students graduate from high school, be in a better position to go to post-secondary education or gainful employment, and ultimately break the intergenerational cycle of poverty, drug use, and incarceration. Last year, over $100,000 was raised for the Star Kids Scholarship Program. For tickets and more information, visit www.starkidsprogram.org or call 401-848-4187.
