The 21st Annual IYRS Summer Gala is title-sponsored by State Street with live entertainment by KC & The Sunshine Band!
The Summer Gala is the biggest and most important fundraiser of the year for IYRS. As one of the main events of Newport in the summer, the Gala attracts a high demographic audience and has been called Newport's largest gathering of exceptional people; a great crowd for a very important educational cause. The Gala raises about 40% of our annual operating costs the night of the event! Not everyone in America should go to a degree school, and IYRS is proof of an alternative: 90% of grads go to great jobs – from major marine trades companies to technology companies like Autodesk and Google X. Support us as we help change learning in America.
