Karma’s 3rd Annual Penguin Walk a waddling success
The 3rd annual Karma Penguin Walk, held recently at Karma’s renowned Le Preverger estate along the Cote d’Azur, has been lauded as a raging success.
The event drew a dedicated group of philanthropists for a day of fun, food, and exercise, which helped to raise funds for Christel House – an international non-profit organisation that transforms the lives of impoverished children around the world.
Starting at Le Preverger, the intrepid penguins ‘waddled’ through the hills to catch the sunrise, before a leisurely breakfast. A boat to St. Tropez delivered them to lunch and a chance to rest their weary flippers, where the thirsty penguins ensured hydration was top order.
“We’ve supported Christel House in a big way since the early days, helping to build a library for the children to use in their studies, as well as supplying all the food: that’s around 900 kids every day of the year. We also hold an annual camp for the kids at one of our Indian resorts.” Said John Spence, Karma’s Global Chairman.
“The Penguin Walk is a more direct and fun way for our members and guests to get involved in unique and fulfilling experiences.”
“When you meet the kids, I mean, some of them really are geniuses. We far exceeded our fundraising expectations this year, and with the money raised, we have enough to put three students through full scholarships. We’re directly contributing to the future business and community leaders of tomorrow, and we really can’t ask for more than that.”
