YOU ARE INVITED!

Rhode Island Haitian Cultural Gala
NEW BRIDGES FOR HAITIAN SUCCESS

OCTOBER 20, 2023

06:00 - 09:00 PM

60 RHODES PLACE - CRANSTON

RHODE ISLAND 02905

On October 20th New Bridges will hold a Gala celebration of 10 years of service to the Haitian immigrant community in Rhode Island! 

 

Over the past decade, Haitian immigrants and refugees to this country have received support with legal concerns, language, housing and health.  Individuals have found meaningful, well-paying jobs and have been able to begin to support their families and put food on the table. Others have entered into educational programs. All have had the opportunity to prepare for new lives in a culturally supportive environment.  

 

Help us keep this work going strong!   Will you join us, at Rhodes on the Pawtuxet on October 20th at 6pm? We will honor those who have supported us, will salute Haitian Culture in Rhode Island, and will dine together in celebration. 

 

Tickets are $100, and tables of 10 are $1,000. You may also support the attendance of a New Bridges student or client. Please join us to support and celebrate!
