Newport — A new fundraiser for New London Hospital raised more than $26,000 earlier this month. More than 180 people attended “The Propeller” at Edmonds Aircraft Service at Parlin Airfield in Newport.
The event, sponsored by the Friends of New London Hospital, included Monte Carlo gaming, a silent auction of aviation-themed artwork, dancing and limbo to a steel drum band, and photos next to a vintage airplane. The money will support the hospital, including a new 3D mammography system.
