Boston Whaler donates to the Atlantic Center for the Arts

Boston Whaler donated $1,252 to the Atlantic Center for the Arts in support of the center's community programs, reflecting a fundraising raffle that took place earlier this year during the annual Images art festival in Florida.

Whaler content and event marketing manager Traci Davis presented a check for the donation on June 22.

"On behalf of the Boston Whaler team, we're proud to present this check to the Atlantic Center for the Arts in support of its children's programs," Davis said in a statement. "We're grateful for this opportunity to give back to our community. It's so gratifying to see our efforts directly help students pursue their interest in the arts."

Now in its 42nd year, Images: A Festival of the Arts, is an event held in New Smyrna Beach, Fla., featuring fine art, music, student exhibits, educational opportunities and more.

The money Whaler raised will allow the ACA to provide 12 kids with scholarships for a week of Summer Art Camp.

"The ACA team greatly appreciates Boston Whaler's involvement over the past few years with Images and our community, raising money to send our kids to Summer Art Camp," said ACA events coordinator Heather Paternoster.
