2024 State of the Bay Luncheon

Thank you for joining us at our First Annual State of the Bay Luncheon on May 15, 2024, at the Newport Harbor Yacht Club! Your participation means a lot to us, and we appreciate your support. A special thank you to our Mayor Will O’Neill and elected officials in attendance.

As a reminder, our foundation depends on the generosity of donors like you to continue our important community work. Every donation, no matter how small, makes a difference in our commitment to the harbor.

We have several upcoming events and activities in which you can volunteer or show your support. To stay updated on our latest events and opportunities to make a positive impact, visit our website or follow us on social media.

Thank you for attending the event and your ongoing support of the Newport Harbor Foundation. We couldn’t do what we do without people like you!
