Island Insurance Donates Proceeds from 30th Anniversary Exhibition to Inspirasia
Proceeds from the sale of paintings during
Island Insurance Brokers' recent collective art exhibition were presented today
to the Inspirasia Foundation. The donation of €2175 was presented to Inspirasia
Foundation in aid of its ongoing projects in health and education for
marginalised communities and persons with disabilities.
Presenting the donation, Dorothy Caruana Garcia
from Island Insurance Brokers explained how the exhibition, themed "Island
Supports the Arts" at Iniala Gallery in Valletta was organised with the
involvement of 23 established Maltese artists to celebrate the company's 30th
"Island Insurance enjoys a long-standing connection to art. This connection stems from an initiative started by
its directors in 1990 when the company was probably the first to start
commissioning local artists, primarily painters but also sculptors, to supply
original works to be given as corporate gifts at year-end. We were delighted by
the fact that besides a fitting celebration of this important milestone for the
company, this exhibition also helped raise some important money for a worthy
cause," said Ms Caruana Garcia.
Brokers was founded in April 1989 by Lawrence Pavia and Carmel Cascun to provide
professional, efficient and cost-effective insurance broking and risk
management services to Malta's industrial and commercial community. Today IIB
forms part of Argus Group Holdings Limited.
