The Newport Public Education Foundation recently announced that it is hosting a Newport Bridge tower tour raffle.
During the raffle, participants will have the chance to win a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to stand atop this Rhode Island icon, all while supporting the foundation’s mission to provide educational enrichment in Newport’s public schools.
