    Child & Family Host 38th Annual Taste (Virtual) Campaign + Auction October 22-24, 2021

    Middletown (RI) October 18, 2021 – Child & Family will host their 38th Taste of Newport (Virtual) Campaign & Auction starting this Friday, October 22nd. The giving starts NOW and culminates with an amazing high-end online auction starting on Friday, October 22, 2021, at 9 am, through Sunday, October 24, 2021, at 8 pm. Donations, and a preview of the online auction, can be made on their campaign website at Childandfamilyritasteofnewport.org.

    The annual fundraiser benefits the many Rhode Island families, children, and seniors who use Child & Family programs and services during times of crisis. The ongoing COVID-19 health pandemic is a multi-pronged threat to systems of health and social and racial justice, exacerbating homelessness, job loss, food insecurity and substance use disorder affecting many people disproportionately. The concurrent pandemics undermine the safety of vulnerable children and families.

    The Campaign is co-chaired by Mark and Ida Aramli with The Aramli Foundation. The Aramli Foundation is a new private charitable foundation intended to support families and children in need and is funded directly by proceeds from the BedJet company, enabled by the over 100,000 units sold by the BedJet company and its continued emergence as a national sleep brand. The Foundation’s mission is most heavily focused on children and family needs in the area surrounding the BedJet headquarters in Newport, RI.

    Child & Family’s 38th Annual Taste of Newport (Virtual) Campaign + Auction will include a luxury online auction as the highlight of this fundraising effort. Packages include a 7-night stay at a villa in Tuscany, a catered party for 24 at your home by Stoneacre Hospitality Group, a trip to Jackson Hole, WY, a trip to Jay Peak, VT, home items such a cooling and heating system with installation and so much more! There is something for everyone.

    Child & Family would also like to send their sincerest “thanks” to the community partners that support their programs year round; this includes The Aramli Foundation, BedJet, Rotary Club of Newport, Citizens Bank, Regan Heating and Air Conditioning, Affiliated Insurance Managers, BankNewport, Bowen’s Wharf Company, Corrigan Financial, Family Service of Rhode Island (FSRI), Gustave White Sotheby’s International Realty, Hilb Group of New England, J2Construct, Inc., Kiwanis Club of Newport, Neighborhood Health Plan of Rhode Island, People’s Credit Union, PKF O’Connor Davies, Secure Networks, Brady Sullivan Properties, as well as leadership gifts from Sue Klau, Sharon & Scott Alemany, and Edward Kale and Kate Hoepfner Karle.
