Hey Rhode Island! We are so excited to share that on March 24th, 2018 Healthcare Revolt will be hosting our first ever fundraising event! The event will include live music from the The Horse-Eyed Men, raffles, games, live jazz, a silent auction and a short address from Dr. Fine, former director of the Department of Health, addressing the need for change and our plans for the Rhode Island health care system. We hope many of you can attend and be a part of a new, community-focused chapter of health care in Rhode Island. Tickets will go on sale February 1st, so keep an eye out. We are looking forward to organizing and mobilizing with our community — all the while enjoying each other’s company.
Healthcare Revolt is a Rhode Island organized effort in partnership with the George Wiley Center to build a health care system that is for people, not profit. We are organizing health care workers and RI citizens to fight for better patient care in their hospitals, community health centers and practices. We want to build systems of care in each Rhode Island community that are run by and for community members. This includes a plan to provide public, free primary health care for every single Rhode Islander. We’ve already begun in Central Falls where Michael Fine M.D., former director of the Department of Health, has partnered with Blackstone Valley Community Healthcare Inc. to produce the first U.S. population-based primary care establishment that serves an entire neighborhood.
Create population-focused healthcare by uniting health care workers to de-industrialize their professional lives.
Allow this united group to lead communities in building multidisciplinary teams and Neighborhood Health Stations. When a critical mass of Neighborhood Health Stations exist, modify existing state law to create the Rhode Island Primary Care Trust, a sustainable financing vehicle for Neighborhood Health Stations and for free, public primary care health services.

Crossroads Rhode Island will hold its annual “Women Helping Women” event on Wed., April 4 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Providence Biltmore Hotel. All proceeds will benefit the Women’s Shelter and other programs for women at Crossroads. Tickets cost $100 and include cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, a brief speaking program and chance to network with over 300 prominent women in the community.

Now in its thirteenth year, the Annual San Miguel Gala draws hundreds of friends together for a celebration benefiting student scholarships at the San Miguel School of Providence. Event guests will enjoy a cocktail reception, Signature Hors d’oeuvres and Raw Bar & Pasta Station. The event will feature student performances, inspirational stories of our 2018 Miguel Medal winners, and the chance to compete for unique Silent and Live Auction items.
All proceeds from the gala benefit student scholarships at San Miguel School.
San Miguel is not your typical private school; because we serve children most in need, less than four percent of our operating budget comes from tuition. We depend on scholarship funds—like those raised at the gala—to fund San Miguel School and give our students life-changing educational opportunities.
This year, we are proud to honor Kathy Dunstan and Kate Motte with the 2018 Miguel Medals.

“It’s been a tremendous season and I can’t wait to celebrate it with our artists, staff, board and, most importantly, our audience. Aside from enjoying a great party, I am most excited for the chance to honor Leon for his contribution to the Rhode Island nonprofit community. His steady, selfless leadership has enriched the cultural fabric of our state,” said Artistic Director Tony Estrella.

our community. Leon Boghossian embodies these principles and we are thrilled to recognize him at this year’s Gala.”

Please join us and show your support for our students and The UCAP School! We are hosting our Seventh Annual UCAP Celebration, The Be-U Spring Do, with Awards Reception, Live and Silent Auction, to enjoy a night of fun with the community, share our achievements, and to introduce our school to new friends. We will honor Joyce L. Stevos, Ph.D. with the All Kids Award and Leidy Valencia with the UCAP Alum Award.
The UCAP School is the only school in Rhode Island that partners with school districts, and helps students at risk of dropping out of school. Thanks to the dedication of our UCAP family, last year’s event raised close to $50,000 in support of Beyond U, our dynamic after school programming. We need your help to once again reach our goal! Be-U is an essential ingredient for the success of our kids at UCAP, and is almost entirely dependent upon the commitment of individual donors, corporations and foundations. Every year, we must raise $350,000 to provide a wide range of activities that will appeal to as many kids as possible, and ensure the program’s success.
The Spring Do, UCAP’s Seventh Annual Awards Reception with Live and Silent Auction will be held on Thursday, April 19, 2018 from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. in the UCAP Gymnasium. Cocktail hour and the silent auction will begin at 5:00 followed by the awards ceremony and live auction. Beer, wine and appetizers will be served.
