Heather Abbott Foundation's 5th Annual Fall Kick Off Fundraiser
HAF's 5th annual Fall Kick Off Fundraiser will represent our inaugural event in Newport, RI! We hope you’ll join us for what’s sure to be a fun and inspirational afternoon, including:
- Stunning ocean views
- Music by Sean Rivers
- RI's freshest seafood and bites
- Online/Silent auction
- Cash bar
- Sponsorship Opportunities
The opportunity to hold HAF’s first RI event at @The Deck is particularly special, because owners, the Abruzese Family, hosted a personal fundraiser for Heather back in April of 2013 at their neighboring nightclub, The Dockside. At the time, she was in the hospital recovering from her own amputation while over 1,000 family, friends, Newport locals, RI businesses and community members supported her successful recovery. This support, in part, contributed to the ability to obtain all the prostheses she required to regain her life. We couldn’t be more thrilled to now celebrate the effects of paying that assistance forward, through HAF, with those very same members of the community on Waites Wharf, where they once gathered to support Heather.
Be sure to take advantage of early bird ticket pricing, available through September 1st, after which general admission tickets will remain available for purchase online and at the door on event day, as available.
A portion of event proceeds will go to Krystle’s Kids’ Fund to support Boston area children with limb differences, in memory of Krystle Campbell who was killed in the Boston Marathon bombing of 2013
