University community invited to Night at the Newport Gulls
Members of the University community are invited to join alumni, parents and friends for Salve Regina’s Night at the Newport Gulls on Monday, July 22. This annual event celebrates the longtime partnership between the University and the Newport Gulls and highlights local students and graduates who learn, lead and make a difference.
Opening ceremonies begin at 6:15 p.m. and the game starts at 6:35 p.m. as the Gulls take on the Ocean State Waves at historic Cardines Field.
Several members of the Salve Regina community will participate in the evening’s festivities. Dr. Kelli J. Armstrong, Salve Regina’s eighth president who officially began her duties at the beginning of this month, will throw out the first pitch along with her husband and sons. Also throwing out the first pitch is Angela Augusta ’19, who was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma shortly after graduation.
Zara Hendrickson, daughter of Kristine Hendrickson, associate vice president for university relations and chief communications officer, will deliver the game ball to the starting pitcher. Social work major Cierra Vincente ’20 will sing the national anthem, and children of Salve Regina faculty and staff will appear during the opening ceremonies as baseball buddies.
Proceeds from the evening’s 50/50 raffle will benefit Salve Regina’s scholarships for local students, including the Beatrice B. and Samuel Z. Bazarsky Endowed Scholarship, Florence F. and Mary L. Sullivan Scholarship, Mason D. Rector Scholarship and the Martin Luther King Jr. Scholarship.
Tickets are complimentary, but members of the Salve Regina community are asked to take only as many as they need for their family to attend the game. Faculty, staff and summer work-study students can pick up tickets in the Office of Human Resources. Alumni, parents and friends are asked to contact the Office of Alumni/Parent Programs at (800) 821-2343 or firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve their tickets.
Parking is available in the municipal lot behind the Gateway Center for a reduced rate with a Newport Gulls ticket stub.
