Event description
Get ready to kick off the Fall season with The Heather Abbott Foundation! Join us for our inaugural Rhode Island event in beautiful Newport!

About this Event

HAF's 5th annual Fall Kick Off Fundraiser will represent our inaugural event in Newport, RI – a City Heather has called home for twelve years in her own home state! We hope you’ll join us for what’s sure to be a fun and inspirational afternoon, including:

The opportunity to hold HAF’s first RI event at @The Deck is particularly special, because owners, the Abruzese Family, hosted a personal fundraiser for Heather back in April of 2013 at their neighboring nightclub, The Dockside. At the time, she was in the hospital recovering from her own amputation while over 1,000 family, friends, Newport locals, RI businesses and community members supported her successful recovery. This support, in part, contributed to the ability to obtain all the prostheses she required to regain her life. We couldn’t be more thrilled to now celebrate the effects of paying that assistance forward, through HAF, with those very same members of the community on Waites Wharf, where they once gathered to support Heather.

Be sure to take advantage of early bird ticket pricing, available through September 1st, after which general admission tickets will remain available for purchase online and at the door on event day, as available.

Amputees and children 12 & under receive complimentary admission. Please email info@heatherabbottfoundation.org for promo code.

A portion of event proceeds will go to Krystle’s Kids’ Fund to support Boston area children with limb differences, in memory of Krystle Campbell who was killed in the Boston Marathon bombing of 2013

Angela, of Waldorf, MD talks about how HAF helped her live her life again, following her traumatic amputation in 2017. Angela was HAF's special guest at the 5th Annual Boston Marathon Weekend Fundraiser in April 2019 and inspired all in attendance with her story of strength and resilience.
