Next RIWA Event:

RIWA's Entertainment Night   

Poppy Champlin, energetic comedian and singer, will be RIWA's special guest to delight members and friends for a fun evening of entertainment and dancing
on November 7th
at Letter Carriers Hall,
174 Mayfield Street, Cranston, RI.

Doors will open at seven.

A favorite of P-Town and performer on Atlantic and Olivia Cruisers, Poppy can quickly pop jokes, do celebrity impressions, sing, dance,
and believe it or not, she can imitate bird sounds.
Quick witted, Poppy, a RI production, graduated from URI with a degree
in theater.
She will be at Letter Carriers Hall,
so come and join in
for a very fun evening.

Poppy's performance will start at eight. When she concludes her show, RIWA DJ Sharon will flow Poppy's high energy into dance music by playing your favorite tunes. The Steering Committee is expecting a full house. To accommodate everyone, the committee will eliminate the food sharing tables in front and instead place some treats in baskets located in the center of the tables where people sit. You can contribute to the snacks and food treats by bringing something for your table.

Because this is a special event, tickets are required and will be sold at the Oct. 3rd Birthday Dance and at the door on Nov. 7th. Only 100 tickets will be sold.  Price is $5 for members and $15 for guests. This fee raises the cost by only $5 for each category.  The doors will swing open at 6:45 pm and once Poppy takes the stage, the inside door will be close - so arrive in time. 
Remember, RIWA is a BYOB event.  Looking forward to seeing you!

If you would like to also serve on this fun
and easy going Steering Committee, feel free to hop on board.

For additional information, feel free to contact one of the committee members.


Thank You All for helping this wonderful organization
of exceptional women reach its 37th Anniversary.

Membership is open to all women. Not a member?
