Biltmore to host Adoption Rhode Island spring gala fundraiser

PROVIDENCE – Adoption Rhode Island invites the public to a spring gala fundraiser on Friday at the Providence Biltmore in support of the group’s efforts to identify families for children living under state care and those navigating the adoption process.

Held 6:30-10 p.m., the event is themed “Planting Seeds of Hope” and will include hors d’oeuvres, light fare and complimentary wine as well as an auction.

“It is amazing to see just how many lives are touched by adoption in one way or another. It’s even more amazing to see how the community embraces our mission and comes forward to offer support for the state’s most vulnerable children,” said Darlene Allen, executive director and CEO of Adoption Rhode Island, in a statement. “All children and youth in foster care deserve a family, a place to belong, a sense of connectedness and the knowledge that someone truly cares for them.”

Tickets are $100 each and are available online or by contacting Bridget Gieseke by phone at (401) 270-1301 or by email:
