In light of recent public health concerns about the COVID-19 Coronavirus, recent state and federal government actions, and in abundance of caution, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Newport County is postponing their Growing Together event that was scheduled for March 27, 2020 to a future date.

At the Boys & Girls Clubs of Newport County, nothing is more important than the safety and well-being of their members and staff. They will continue to closely follow the recommendations of U.S. Center for Disease Control and the State of Rhode Island, as well as stay up-to-date with local developments regarding the spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus. Public health and wellness is truly a community-wide effort, and they take it seriously.

They anticipate re-scheduling Growing Together 2020 for this Fall, and will honor all sponsorships, tickets and advertisers. They have a truly special group of award recipients and want their community to be able to attend and celebrate their achievements together!
