Gala brings renewed support to IMC’s Fund Our Future

Thank you to all who joined and supported IMC at the Old Colony House for IMC’s annual gala!

IMC would like to thank our guests, volunteers, and sponsors for joining us and supporting IMC at its annual gala. Special thanks to the Newport Historical Society for providing IMC with an alternate venue for the evening at the Old Colony House. Despite the stormy weather and change of venue, people arrived in the best finest summer attire to celebrate dance and the arts in Newport County. Little Bitte Artisanal Cocktails and The Original Moonlighters helped create a light and fun atmosphere despite the heavy rain that passed through the area during the evening. See below for images and more fun.

Thank you Randal and his Doing Well by Doing Good Charitable Foundation for $10,000 of support to IMC!

“As a long-term supporter of the organization and an avid fan of their inspiring sight specific contemporary ballet which Island Moving Company’s talented dancers have brought to our Newport community over the last 39 years, I feel very fortunate that my foundation is able to support the organization’s long-term mission with the upcoming construction of its soon to be performing arts home here in the City by the Sea. The goal of this gift is to help the company continue to build and enhance the community’s access to world class dance, while also simultaneously benefiting the future economic development of the community.”

-Randal Poirier, ChFC
