Thank You to all NKEF Volunteers at the 59th Annual Wickford Art Festival!

Thank you to Brian O’Malley and the Wickford Art Association for bringing the North Kingstown Educational Foundation back for the 2nd time to assist with this year’s 59th Wickford Art Festival. We had over 45 NKEF volunteers donate their time to park cars and sell water, during the Festival at Wilson Park and Centerville Bank.  Our sincere thanks are given to each and every one of them.  Without their support we would not have been able to successfully park over 2,000 cars and sell over 1,500 bottles of water during the weekend festival. All proceeds will directly benefit NKEF and the WAA. 

We couldn’t have done it without you NKEF Volunteers! 

Thank you !
