Dear IYRS and Gala Staff, 
What a pleasure it was to be apart of very successful event! I donated the massive 48x72 First Edition Artist Proof, sepia toned, "The Jibe" in Silent Auction - thank you for that opportunity! You set the bar high with all of the amenities, atmosphere, drinks/food, band, guests and auction (Silent and Live) items on the perfect weather night. I can't wait to support/donate another great piece for 2018! Sincerely with much success for the near and distant futures, Matthew

Sadly I could not make the gala, although I made sure to be a part of the auction again this year. IYRS is a terrific organization that I will continue to support for years to come. Looking forward to my next visit.

What a marvelous evening, a tremendous event. Muffy and I are so happy to contribute to the unfortunate marine craftsman who cant afford a Summer Joinery  course in Newport. Their craftsmanship will soon be contracted for a makeover on our Yacht The Flying Wasp.
