A special pre-season partial lighting in Memorial Park on Saturday, April 1, 2023, sponsored by United Way of Rhode Island in celebration of their annual 401Gives campaign. The lighting will begin after sunset (7:10 p.m.) and the braziers will remain lit until 9:30 p.m.
“401Gives, powered by United Way of Rhode Island, was created as a collective day of giving to both support the state’s nonprofit community and uplift the vital work of a sector that touches nearly every Rhode Islander. Over the past three years, 401Gives has raised over $6.6 million for over 625 local nonprofits. What a better way to celebrate the hard work of these nonprofits and thank donors than by sponsoring and gathering at our state’s beloved WaterFire,” Says Cortney Nicolato, President and CEO of United Way of Rhode Island
WaterFire Providence will be participating in 401Gives for the fourth year in a row; supporters can donate to WaterFire during the 401Gives campaign by going to waterfire.org/401Gives.
WaterFire Providence® is an independent, 501(c)3 nonprofit arts organization whose mission is to inspire Providence and its visitors by revitalizing the urban experience, fostering community engagement and creatively transforming the city by presenting WaterFire for all to enjoy.
