Support Front Line Workers

To support the front line workers team up with a cause that even Viola Davis, Matunuck Oyster Bar & Belle’s Cafe can get behind! These local ladies started “We give a FIG”  & have already delivered 500 meals with a short term goal of 2000!

To learn more, donate, participate visit Https:// and or Sign up for their Golf tourney “For The Front Line” hosted at Newport National August 24th.
