AmaWaterways has donated the entire onboard art collection from its recently renovated ship, the AmaDagio, to the Avignon chapter of Kiwanis International.
The artwork, which will be auctioned off to raise money for local children’s charities, was ceremoniously handed over at a special reception aboard the AmaDagio on Saturday, August 4, 2012.
“One of the main reasons we started this company 10 years ago was to provide enriching experiences that bridge different cultures and bring people together,” said Kristin Karst, AmaWaterways’ executive vice president and co-founder.
The AmaDagio event was attended by about 40 guests, including local dignitaries and city officials, the Italian Consul in the Department of Vaucluse, Mrs. Monique Albergati, AmaDagio Captain Louis Devaux, members of Kiwanis France and local print/broadcast media. Karen Argonza, representing AmaWaterways US headquarters, was also on hand for the festivities.
