The NER Annual Winter Gala is headed to Newport – well, actually Portsmouth – at the spectacular Newport Car Museum, 1947 West Main Rd, Portsmouth, RI 02871.  If you’ve never been before, you’ll be blown away by this new museum.  If you’ve had the pleasure of visiting before, you’ll surely want to return!


The Gala is the club’s featured social event and this year promises to be a great one.  You’ll enjoy passed appetizers and a drink while you socialize and ogle the spectacular cars (many Porsches).  If you wish you can try your hand at a driving simulator – yes, driving after drinking is OK on this!   There’ll also be plenty of interesting items available for purchase in the Silent Auction.  This year we will also have a live auction of some very special items.  And, of course, we’ll have a sit-down dinner and brief awards presentations.

We have reserved a block of rooms at the Bristol Harbor Inn, which would be perfect for a pre-party with your friends, and is “on the way home” for most of those that will be staying overnight.  Nestled against the tranquil waters of Bristol Harbor, in the heart of historic downtown Bristol, this contemporary hotel blends coastal charm with boutique elegance.  Rates are as low as $79 and only slightly more for a fireplace or a suite.  And discounts if you stay two nights!  IMPORTANT:  YOU MUST BOOK BY NOVEMBER 20, 2018.  Call 866.254.1444 and tell them “Porsche Club.”

In fact, we suspect many folks will want to plan a weekend in Newport so look for upcoming articles in the NOR’EASTER with suggested tours, other attractions, dining and some insider tips.

Tickets go on sale November 7 at 10pm. Please contact Glenn Champagne ([email protected]) with any questions or dietary restrictions.
