The last few days for Rhode Island and all along the east coast can best be summed up as devastating and eye opening. Several million people still several days after the storm still have no electricity and even worse still have not been able to visit their homes in evacuated areas. Homes have been destroyed, biz's have been flooded, lives have been lost, and millions of people need to be reminded now more then ever that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
The Newport Buzz Team & The Face Show are launching this fundraising campaign and hosting a fundraiser in an effort to call on our community to come together and do our part to give back to all those who lost so much and hopefully give them HOPE.
You can donate to the fundraiser right here on the site and/or at the fundraiser at Newport Blues Cafe on November 11th. Donations must be received on-line by 11/16.
