Boston Whaler recently raised nearly $2,000 to benefit The Atlantic Center for the Arts' community programs.

The money was raised during Images: A Festival of the Arts, an annual event held in New Smyrna Beach, Fla., through the raffle of a custom-designed and -painted piece featuring a Boston Whaler boat cruising the open seas.

Last Friday, representatives from Boston Whaler visited the ACA Summer Art Camp and presented a check for the full amount.

"Boston Whaler is extremely proud to support our local community," said Boston Whaler president Nick Stickler in a statement. "Efforts like this remind us all how rewarding it is and how crucial it is to give back to the city that has welcomed us for so many years."

The amount Boston Whaler raised for the community programs will be enough to send 20 children on full scholarship to the Summer Art 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 kids to Summer Art Camp," said Heather Paternoster, ACA special events coordinator.
