WARWICK – The threat of rain could not dampen the spirits of those in attendance of Providence Business News’ 2017 40 Under Forty celebration. Held again at the Aldrich Mansion in Warwick Neck, the event attracted 400 of Rhode Island’s business leaders and family members to celebrate the achievements and potential of this year’s honorees.
