The Curaçao Lions Club is the first (and therefore oldest) Lions club to be organized and chartered in the Kingdom of the Netherlands on February 27th, 1946. The club consisted of 50 prominent members of our community. The motto of Lions International “WE SERVE” was put into practice, reinforcing:
- the understanding among fellow-members;
- motivating and bringing people together;
- being a positive force in our community;
- creating enjoyable, safer and saner ways of living;
- planning and implementing Lionistic projects on behalf of and for the well-being of the community in need and distress.
Dear Friends of the Curaçao Lions,
I welcome you to this exciting ArtX experience which celebrates the work of our wonderful local artists, while supporting the community in various ways. First of all I would like to thank all of the valuable contributing members to this wonderful event; the esteemed members of our art community who shape the high-quality art pieces that will be offered, and also the event organizers who are making sure that it will be a fun-filled and exhilarating event.
As many people know, the Curaçao Lions Club has been privileged in being able to help the community for the past 72 years with its many projects and donations that are almost engrained in our society, such as, among others, Bon Bisiña, Fundashon Duna e Mucha un Man and Senior Citizen’s Day which supports important segments in our society which are our children, families and senior citizens. This year, The ArtX event is supporting for the second time, the Ronald McDonald House Charity, which offers assistance to families of young oncology patients. We are so very pleased that part of our proceeds will go to such a worthy cause and we are also pleased that we could bring together so many artists of stature to such an event.
We invite you to take a look at the art pieces that are being offered, to come to the event with your friends and family to mingle with other like-minded enthusiasts, to enjoy this process and to bid on not only the art pieces but also some very interesting and unique artistic experiences with artists that only you will be able to experience. Let’s have a fun night together while helping our community! See you at our Lion’s home, Landhuis Klein kwartier, on March 17th, 2018.
President of the Curaçao Lions Club 2017 – 2018
