Montegrappa visit the Rashid Paediatric Therapy Centre
Rashid Paediatric Therapy Centre, a home for children with special needs, hosted Dubai International Art Symposium (DIAS), an 8-day event where 30 artists from different parts of the world came together to paint 2 paintings each. These paintings will be later auctioned with the proceeds going towards improving the lives of children with special needs.
The event was held at the Rashid Paediatric Therapy Centre from 1st through 8th October 2013. Montegrappa Italia has long been a supporter of the Rashid Centre.
In support of the DIAS, Montegrappa donated one of its latest limited edition pens – Salvador Dali, to the Rashid Centre and also did a week-long promotion of the event in Emirates Towers Boulevard, displaying the Salvador Dali limited edition pens, alongside two Dali sculptures – the Space Elephant and Dance of Time.
Mr. Giuseppe Aquila, the CEO of Montegrappa Italia visited the Rashid Centre and was deeply touched by the warmth of the welcome he received from the children at the therapy centre.
He spent some quality time with the children and honored each of the artists with a Montegrappa fountain pen at a special dinner in the presence of Mrs. Mariam Othman, Director of Rashid Paediatric Therapy Centre.
