200 Years of BankNewport


We couldn’t have done it without you!

BankNewport teamed up with the United Way to make fleece blankets and give away teddy bears to veterans and their families this holiday season. This was our heartfelt way of saying thank you to veterans who have served our nation.

Over the last year, we have been helping families to affordably see musicals such as Charlie and Chocolate FactorySchool of Rock, and Anastasia at the Providence Performing Arts Center. BankNewport’s Family Night features a Buy One, Get One promotion to allow all families the opportunity to visit the theater.

BankNewport teamed up with Garden City Center to present free summer concerts at The Gazebo. When nearly 2,000 people showed up for our first concert on July 11th, we knew we had a hit on our hands! Thank you to all the bands, the city of Cranston and all the concertgoers, many of whom participated in our food drive, for a great summer of music!

The Pawtucket Red Sox are a Rhode Island institution and we’re proud to support them. We love bringing guests to enjoy a game. For this year’s BankNewport’s PawSox Day, our guests were  the community groups ARISE, Princes2Kings, ONE Neighborhood Builders, and West Elmwood Housing. We all enjoyed a full-day of fun with a pre-game barbeque, the ball game, and a free BankNewport 200th anniversary baseball cap.

We’re proud to support a long-running Newport tradition by supporting the Weekend of Coaching. Every year the Preservation Society of Newport County has beautiful, majestic horses pull historic and authentic coaches throughout the mansions of Newport. It truly is something you have to experience at least once!

BankNewport helped Barrington Beach and Latham Park rock out this past summer by sponsoring the Barrington Summer Concert Series. With tunes from Triad, The New 40, Becky Chace Band, Boston Premier, Brass Attack, Detroit Breakdown and Roger Ceresi’s Allstarz, Sunday nights in Barrington have never been so fun!
