NARRAGANSETT â€“ Some 120 Narragansett residents gathered at Quonset Point on Thursday evening for a sunset cruise to raise money for the new Narragansett Community Athletic Complex.
The cruise, which took place aboard the Ava Pearl, a Rhode Island Fast Ferry, traveled round-trip from Quonset Point to Newport Harbor, passing 10 lighthouses along the way.
The fundraiser included an introduction to â€śThe Murray Family Challenge,â€ť an initiative set forth by Suzanne and Terry Murray of Narragansett, seeking donations in the amount of $500 that can be paid over the course of up to five years.
The challenge dictates that if the town can gather 500 donations of $500 from Narragansett full or part-time residents, the Murray family will donate another $50,000 to the athletic complex in addition to the previous $50,000 they have generously provided.
