"Small Island, Big Hearts" Tournament Benefits Newport Hospital
Wednesday, November 01, 2017

Friends and family of the late Marshall and Bruce Johnson—Aquidneck Island brothers, athletes and jai alai players—gathered in October to present the Newport Hospital Foundation with a charitable donation of $17,000, from the proceeds of the fifth annual “Small Island, Big Hearts” golf tournament, held in June at Green Valley Country Club to honor the Johnson brothers’ memory.

The Johnson brothers’ dreams were realized on the Jai Alai courts of Newport and Florida. Their legacy is one of laughter, sportsmanship and incredible talent. With the generosity of “Small Island, Big Hearts” volunteers, sponsors and attendees, the group was able to reach their goals to donate to the Newport Hospital Foundation and to the Newport, Middletown, and Portsmouth High School Athletic Departments. To date, “Small Island, Big Hearts” has contributed $92,000.00 to the Newport County community.

Three Angels Fund Makes Donation
Monday, January 16, 2017

In 2010, cousins Andrew Bulk and Jennifer Lopes established the Three Angels Fund to honor the memory of their aunts, Eileen Bulk, Ann Pine and Nan Bulk, who lost their lives to cancer. Every summer, Andrew, Jennifer, and their families host a fundraiser at Kempenaar’s Clambake Club in Middletown to celebrate the lives of their aunts while helping others who are fighting the same battle they did. At a recent reception, The Three Angels Fund presented a check for $35,000, the proceeds from their 2016 event, to Newport Hospital to support the Comprehensive Cancer Center and Aquidneck Island families combating cancer.
