PPS Anniversary Gala - Powered by Preservation

Saturday, 11/04/2017

2017 Gala 3

 

For more than six decades, the Providence Preservation Society (PPS) has served as activist for the city’s historic character. POWERED BY PRESERVATION, an anniversary gala, will honor the past and catalyze preservation advocacy for a new era.

We are setting the scene at the 1912, Georgian Revival-style South Street Power Station, longtime home to the Narragansett Electric Company until extended vacancy placed it on PPS’s Most Endangered Properties advocacy list in 2011-2012. A visionary public-private partnership and use of historic tax credits is leading to its rebirth this year as South Street Landing, featuring new space for Brown University and the Rhode Island Nursing Education Center (a collaboration between Rhode Island College and the University of Rhode Island, overseen by the Office of the Postsecondary Commissioner). 

Celebrate in style and be among the first to witness this grand-scale Providence preservation success story, and support PPS’s work toward many more.

Featuring fine catering by Russell Morin, open bar by McLaughlin & Moran, luxury auction, and entertainment by Danielle Ponder and The Tomorrow People.

Black tie. Parking available on site.

 

Co-chairs: Christopher Marsella; Melissa Trapp; James V. DeRentis and Brett Smiley
