MiCRO FUNDRAISER AT GOAT ISLAND MARINA

Blue and White Micro Fundraiser sunset dinner success for Program Director Nichole Lewis of Aquidneck Island Mentoring a division or Mentor Rhode Island at Goat Island Marina hosted by President Christon A. Gibson of Newport Living and Lifestyles and Liz Reilly of The Newport Society Club raising over $1500 with a limited 40 locals with high end donations from local businesses listed below.

“Micro” fundraising, a term coined by Christon Gibson, is unique and sustainable, as all large fundraising events for charitable causes have been shut down for 2020. Many local nonprofits are struggling to survive and with children being vulnerable to their environment and a major at risk sector of the population due to COVID, Christon believes that drawing attention to organizations that support the wellbeing of children is imperative. This is where we need to place our focus. 

A portion of the proceeds benefited MentorRI. 

MENTOR Rhode Island is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization dedicated to the expansion of quality mentoring services for Rhode Island youth. Their mission is to ensure youth have access to the motivational and supportive relationships they need to grow into confident, successful adults.
