Guests enjoyed a beach bonfire at the Galilee Beach Club.

Meals on Wheels of RI’s Bonfire Beach Bash fundraising event—held Oct. 25, 2018 at the Galilee Beach Club in Narragansett—raised more than $38k to support the agency’s vital services that keep homebound Rhode Island seniors healthy and safe.

“We could not be more grateful to everyone who made this event not only possible, but also very successful,” said Meals on Wheels of RI Executive Director Heather Amaral. “Together with our event sponsors, board of directors, in-kind donors and attendees, we were able to raise much-needed funds that will help keep our clients well-nourished and able to live independently in their own homes.”

Nearly 200 MOWRI supporters—including board and staff members—enjoyed a night of mingling over a scrumptious variety of nibbles provided by Millonzi Fine Catering, bidding on silent and live auction items and enjoying the talents of DJ Jason Citrone of Music Mixers Entertainment.

Guests also learned a bit more about Meals on Wheels of RI’s critical work and had the opportunity to bid on our “fund-a-need” live auction item, donating to fund from one week’s worth to one year’s worth of home-delivered meals.

“Meals on Wheels of RI is extremely fortunate to have an incredibly dedicated board of directors, who worked—together with our staff—tirelessly on this fundraiser,” said Karen L. Weavill, CFRE, director of development. “We are ecstatic that those who attended really enjoyed the evening and incredibly thankful for their generous support.”
