Haute couture, grande cuisine & French Riviera glam are the inspirations for this year’s Newport Polo Bal du Soleil at Rosecliff.

Friday, August 5 marks the 16th annual Gala and newportFILM is oh-so-very grateful to be named the beneficiary!

Newport Polo generously supports Rhode Island non-profits each year by making them the recipients of the Gala’s silent auction proceeds. It’s not every day that you see an Aquidneck Island organization giving back so heavily to its community.

In the past few years, Newport Polo has supported other non-profits such as Roger Williams Park Zoo, the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center, and The Hope Funds for Cancer Research.

And don’t forget to check out details of our newportFILM Outdoors screening of Being AP at the Newport International Polo Grounds Thursday, August 25.
