Royal Caribbean and Art Auction Crew Raise $20K for Charity
The Art Auction Team representing Park West Gallery aboard the Royal Caribbean “Explorer of the Seas” recently organized several events to raise money for charities in the ship’s ports of call. The fundraising activities conducted by art auctioneers and other cruise ship crew members generated over $20,000!
One of the most successful events was a Crew Auction to benefit an orphanage in Dominica and a children’s hospice in Antigua. All crew members were invited to attend the midnight event as artwork donated by Park West Gallery was auctioned along with many other great items, opportunities and services.
“When you consider that these crew members of modest means donated over $20,000 in a month to help children in need, it gives you hope for a better tomorrow,” said art auctioneer John Block.
The funds raised will be put to good use by nonprofit organizations sponsored by the ship as part of an ongoing commitment to its ports of call.
