Child & Family to host annual Taste of Newport fundraiser

MIDDLETOWN – After a three-year hiatus, local social services nonprofit Child & Family will host its 39th annual Taste of Newport fundraising event in person on Oct. 23 from 5-8 p.m. at the Wyndham Newport Hotel.

The organization’s signature event comes back to being in person for the first time since 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The event will feature offerings from the state’s top restaurants, caterers, beverage vendors and confectioners.

Child & Family also said there will also be an online silent auction running from Oct. 20-23. Proceeds from the event will benefit local families the organization supports in times of crisis. For additional information on the gala, visit Child & Family’s website.
