Child & Family hosted its 155th birthday celebration on Aug. 7.
Newport This Week, August 12, 2021
Guests enjoyed the view of the Pell Bridge and the sunset from Belle Mer. The entire celebration was recently gifted to the organization by a generous donor with the intent of creating a fundraiser for the agency. Marty Sinnott of C&F welcomed guests from the band’s microphone and said he was glad to see so many chose to attend their event instead of President Barack Obama’s birthday celebration on the Cape. For more than 155, years Child & Family has been providing essential services across Rhode Island. Child & Family’s case managers, teachers, foster families, and others have worked tirelessly throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic to keep families together, children cared for, and seniors safe in their homes. The evening at Belle Mer was a chance to celebrate their accomplishments and heroic efforts. Those who attended helped honor the legacy of Child & Family with a “Happy Birthday” gift for lasting and positive change. All funds raised will support Child & Family’s programs for families, children, and seniors.
