The Brain Injury Association of Rhode Island, celebrating its 36th year of service, invites you to the Hidden Treasure Gala.  This year’s signature event will take place on Thursday, September 26 and will be hosted by OceanCliff Hotel and Resort in Newport.  A true Rhode Island gem, OceanCliff is set amidst 10 acres of rolling lawns and commands outstanding water views over Narragansett Bay.

This year’s event features more than twelve of the state’s premier executive and pastry chefs who will partner with area vineyards to create a guest experience of signature food and wine tastings like no other. Truly the best of Rhode Island!

Exclusive silent and live auction experiences and packages will also be on offer, masterfully choreographed by guest MC and auctioneer, Sir Jeremy Bell of Edinburgh, Scotland.

Event Chair Ellen Slattery, Proprietor of Gracie’s and Ellie’s, and her Gala Committee look forward to welcoming you to an evening of sophistication, elegance and culinary excellence, all in support of the mission of the Brain Injury Association of Rhode Island.
