Philanthropy

As a non-profit association, Philanthropy is at the heart of every one of our events. All of the proceeds from our wedding shows and special events go towards supporting local charities and organizations. Past recipients include breast cancer awareness and treatment, service animal organization, and local colleges and universities. This kind of charitable giving is often not possible for individual professionals; Rhode Island wedding Group gives members the opportunity to work together for the greater good.
