Kent Hospital will partner with the Rotary Club of Warwick to host a traditional May Breakfast on May 1. Proceeds will benefit Rotary charities.
Kent previously hosted the Rotary May Breakfast in the mid-1980s through the ’90s, and is pleased to again partner with the club to partake in a Rhode Island tradition begun in 1867 at the Old Quaker Meeting House in the Oak Lawn section of Cranston. This year’s May Breakfast includes scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, home fries, French toast with warm maple syrup, oatmeal, a Greek yogurt bar with assorted toppings, juice and coffee.
“Kent Hospital is very pleased to join with the Rotary Club of Warwick for their annual May Breakfast,” said Sandra Coletta, Care New England COO and Kent Hospital president. “Kent and the Warwick Rotary have a long history of collaboration and in serving our community. This is a great opportunity to further that partnership.”
“We’re very excited to be returning to Kent Hospital for this traditional event that has become a community staple,” said Rotary Club President Dennis Sleister. “We look forward to a great turnout on May 1, which is sure to be a lot of fun for the benefit of some very important local charities. We hope to see you there.”
The Rotary Club of Warwick is part of Rotary International whose purpose is to bring together business and professional leaders to provide humanitarian services locally and throughout the world. Local beneficiaries include The Kent Center, Elizabeth Buffum Chace Center, Warwick Boys & Girls Clubs, the Warwick schools 3rd grade dictionary project and annual scholarship funds for Warwick high schools and Bishop Hendricken seniors, just to name a few. As one example of the impact of Rotary International, the Polio Plus Campaign was organized in 1986 to eradicate polio throughout the world by immunizing millions of young children in Asia and Africa. This very successful campaign will continue until the scourge of polio is conquered.
Tickets for the breakfast may be purchased at the door for $8 per person, from all Warwick Rotarians, or at the Warwick Beacon office located at 1944 Warwick Avenue.
