The Boat Houselocated at 227 Schooner Drive in Tiverton, RI, partnered with the Tiverton Police Department on its annual toy drive: Operation Blue Santa. On Tuesday, December 13th, the Boat House hosted a special event for guests who brought in a new, unwrapped toy or gift to the Newport Restaurant Group property to enjoy complimentary appetizers and a cash bar with a portion of the proceeds going to the toy drive. 

“During the holidays, Newport Restaurant Group understands that the needs within our community grow exponentially,” said Louis Capodilupo, General Manager, Boat House. “We are so pleased to partner with the Tiverton Police Department on this initiative once again, and hope that the gifts collected will make a joyful impact on the kids in our community.”  

Nearly 75 guests attended the event, and hundreds of toys were collected, including $200 worth of toys donated by Boat House. This is the second year that Boat House participated in Operation Blue Santa.

The Boat House’s parent company, Newport Restaurant Group, is currently running its annual gift card fundraiser, donating $2.00 from every gift card order this holiday season to local food banks and area non-profits committed to building a sustainable and local food supply for those in need.
