The SSV Oliver Hazard Perry started its Sailing Education mission in the summer of 2015. The ship's summer celebration and gala will be held once again at Newport Shipyard on Friday, July 1, 2016.
Please join us to celebrate this unprecedented $16 million economic development project that has supported hundreds of jobs in the Rhode Island marine industry.
Throughout the evening, guests can participate in a live and silent auction all while enjoying cocktails, dinner, dancing and dessert. SSV Oliver Hazard Perry will be dockside and open for visits. Proceeds from the night will go toward the organization’s educational programs.
