BankNewport is Top Sponsor for 30th Annual Taste of Newport

MIDDLETOWN, RI – BankNewport will serve as Event Sponsor for the 30th anniversary of Taste of Newport, which is the signature fundraiser each year for Child & Family.  Taste is scheduled for Sunday, November 17th at 5:30pm and is held at the Hyatt Regency Newport.

Thirty years ago our community came together and created a way to highlight the amazing culinary talent in Newport, while also supporting those in need.  Restaurants, caterers, bakeries and confectioners in Newport and the surrounding communities come together in support of Child & Family and its many programs and services, all of which impact the well-being of over 6,000 community members each year.

“BankNewport is very proud to sponsor Taste of Newport, a special celebration embraced by our community for 30 years,” stated BankNewport President and CEO, Sandra J. Pattie.  “The common thread of “family” has always been the foundation of this event – the family of restaurants and chefs sharing their culinary talents, the family of volunteers generously offering their time, and the family of attendees, old and new, all gathering to honor the tireless efforts of Child & Family.”

“We are honored and grateful to have BankNewport as Event Sponsor for Taste because of our common commitment to the communities we serve,” stated Child & Family President and CEO, Peter DiBari.”  “Our long histories of supporting and strengthening Newport County residents have been intertwined for over 147 years.”

With over 550 guests attending and almost 50 restaurants participating, this highly anticipated event is always an unforgettable evening. It celebrates our community’s talented chefs while making a lasting impact in the lives of those who truly need it.  Since its inception, Taste of Newport has raised over $3.5 million and has helped more than 150,000 individuals and families.
