Pistorio Foundation Charity Cocktail Reception

On Friday 15 May 2009 a Charity Cocktail Reception was organized, sponsored, and hosted by art-dealers Carole and Frédéric de Senarclens in support of the Pistorio Foundation’s Chiang Rai Village Project. Guests were able to admire impressionist artworks by masters such as Renoir and Vuillard, enjoy Italian Barbera Sant’Emiliano wine offered by the Marchesi Incisa della Rocchetta family, and Laurent-Perrier champagne, sponsored by Ludovic de Lageard, while learning about the Foundation and our latest projects. H.E. Italian Ambassador Folco de Luca Gabrielli and H.E. Swiss Ambassador Joerg Reding attended the event, together with distinguished guests from the finance and business sectors.

Over S$16,500 were raised during the evening from voluntary personal donations as well as from an auction of a lithograph by British contemporary artist Adam Dant. These donations will go directly to the Pistorio Foundation’s Chiang Rai Village Project and namely towards the sponsorship of children’s education, acquisition of school supplies and resources and construction of a new primary school in a hill-tribe village.
