Boston Whaler said it recently donated more than $1,400 to the Atlantic Center for the Arts in New Smyrna Beach, Fla., in support of the center's community programs.

Whaler director of consumer experiences Nathan Abdalian and marketing and sales event coordinator Anna Collins presented a check for the donation and met with students and teachers at the center last Wednesday.

"We're proud to present this check to Atlantic Center for the Arts in support of its terrific programs," Abdalian said in a statement. "On behalf of the entire Boston Whaler team we are so grateful to our local community for their ongoing support. It's rewarding to celebrate that community and be able to give back."

The money was raised during this year's Images Art Festival, an annual event held in New Smyrna, through the raffle of two custom art pieces, each featuring a Boston Whaler boat. The money raised by Boston Whaler will go toward Summer Art Camp scholarships for children who would not otherwise be able to attend; every $100 raised sends a child to a week of camp.

"The ACA team deeply appreciates the level of involvement Boston Whaler has had these past few years with Images and our community, raising money to send our kids to Summer Art Camp," said Heather Paternoster, special events coordinator for the center.

The center is a non-profit, interdisciplinary artists-in-residence community and arts education facility designed to promote artistic excellence by providing talented artists an opportunity to work and collaborate with contemporary artists in the fields of music composition and the visual, literary and performing arts.
