All That Glitters

With a little help from Tiffany & Co., The Preservation Society of Newport County’s annual fundraising gala at the Breakers
was extra opulent this year. A remembrance of the 1957 Tiffany Ball, the benefit featured a “blue box” raffle (top prizes were
a men’s watch and platinum, pearl and diamond earrings) and a display of nineteenth-century flatware and ceramics. The black-tie bash netted about $300,000 for the society.
