The Newport Car Museum has teamed with Sailing Heals, a non-profit in Marblehead, Mass. that serves cancer patients in Rhode Island and several states, to host a fundraiser at the Museum on Friday, June 15, 6:30-8:30 p.m. In addition to exploring six separate galleries filled with more than 70 cars, guests will enjoy cocktails and hors-d’oeuvres along with a raffle for over a dozen generous items. Sailing Heals hosts cancer patients and their caregivers on healing escapes at sea aboard private sailing vessels. Several Aquidneck Island sailors donate their boats, time and energy to the program.

Tickets are $75/person and sales benefit Sailing Heals and Mass General Cancer Center. They can be purchased in advance at www.sailingheals.org or at the door.
