This Saturday during Newport vs. Boston, the hometown sports heroes won't only be on the polo field. Memorabilia of New England legends including the Patriots, Red Sox, Celtics, and Bruins, along with other special treasures will be field-side in a curated silent auction to support Kia Ora Cosmic Ball beneficiary, The Jeffrey Osborne Foundation. Make your way to the Vendor Village (near the Pavilion & Pro Shop) to cast your bid for these rare collectibles. Proceeds will help keep music and the arts in our public school systems and provide food, shelter, and a safe haven for families and children in need.
Since 2012, the Jeffrey Osborne Foundation and the Jeffrey Osborne Celebrity Classic have contributed over $750,000 to support initiatives and non-profit organizations that keep music and the arts in RI public school systems, through the Rhode Island Philharmonic Music School and its Community Partners including the Met School, as well as provide food, shelter and a safe-haven for families and children in need through the work of the Amos House, Rhode Island’s largest soup kitchen, and strive to build productive relationships, through St. Mary’s Home for Children & Family Services, The Boys & Girls Clubs of Providence and Button Hole.
