Seamen’s Church Institute benefit this Sunday

This Sunday, Aug. 22, Seamen’s Church Institute of Newport will host its fourth annual Rock the Docks Lobsterfest from 6 to 9 p.m. under the North Lawn tent at Ft. Adams.

Rock the Docks raises operating funds for Seamen’s Church Institute’s mission of providing men and women of the sea – and those referred from the Newport community – with a safe haven in which they may find comfort, aid and benefit.

Seamen’s Church Institute is currently undergoing a major project to renovate the third-floor residence and make building-wide safety improvements to include handicap accessibility. Construction of the new elevator tower can be seen from Bowen’s Wharf.

Tickets are $95 per person and reservations should be made in advance by calling Megan at 619-3990.
