An evening of dinner, dancing, and fundraising is coming up this weekend. Special Olympics Rhode Island hosts their annual Benefest on Saturday, Oct. 22 at 6 p.m. at Hotel Viking in Newport.

This signature event helps to raise the necessary funds for Special Olympics Rhode Island to continue to provide year-round sports opportunities for the athletes.

With a $150 donation ($60 for SORI athletes), guests will enjoy complimentary beer, wine, and champagne, as well as live music and silent and live auctions.

Proceeds from Benefest 2016 go towards Special Olympics Rhode Island. Watch above as CEO Dennis DeJesus explains.
