NEWPORT – The 15th annual International Yacht Restoration School Summer Gala will take place July 7 at the school’s waterfront campus in Newport to the theme of “Mastering the Craft: Celebrating 15 Years of Excellence.”
“The Gala will include everything we’ve come to expect over the years: great food, a big auction and a fabulous dance party,” said Pam Rorke Levy, event co-chair. “IYRS plays an essential role by training highly skilled craftspeople who work to the highest standard of excellence – and the Gala is our chance to ensure that future generations of students will have the opportunity to follow that same path.”
The gala is sponsored by The Hilton Group at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney and the Prestige Family of Fine Cars.
Tickets are $375 for a full evening of dinner and dancing or $100 for a 9 p.m. to midnight portion of the evening to include cocktails, desert buffet, and dancing.
