After months of planning, meetings and countless emails, the 14th Neighborhoods of Newport House Tour was deemed a huge success by all who attended. Almost 400 people purchased tickets this year and our final proceeds are still being tallied. A percent of our proceeds benefits the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center.
We absolutely could not host an event of this scale without the help of the entire St. Michael’s Community including parents, teachers, staff and spouses. We are deeply grateful to the level of commitment displayed by all involved and were proud to represent our united and beautiful school to the community at large.
