Our “Part of Water” Festival was a true celebration of the Newport spirit 


On May 18, around 1,400 people came to NHHS to see our showings of “Part of Water,” the emotional documentary honoring Ben Carlson and the brave Lifeguards who protect our coast. We were joined by 18 local non-profits, businesses, and eateries, along with some wonderful live music. Through the generosity of the donors to our blind bid auction, we were able to make a good start on raising funds for next year’s scholarships.

It was a truly special day that brought all parts of the Newport community together, and we want to thank everyone who helped make it possible—the filmmakers, the Ben Carlson family & Foundation, the volunteers, the local groups and businesses, the musicians, the students, and especially Newport Harbor High School for their support. 


You will not want to miss our next event (including something big in 2020 for our alma mater’s 90th birthday), so make sure to update your info to be the first to learn more!
