On Friday, October 4th, 2013, Vespiario (Thailand) Co., Ltd., the sole authorized distributor of Piaggio and Vespa in Thailand, unveiled Vespa’s new model, Vespa 946, and announced plans for a “La Dolce Vita” Charity Gala Dinner the following day. The charity gala dinner was organized to celebrate the new model of this year’s Ricordo Italiano collection and support the Asia Injury Prevention (AIP) Foundation’s “Help save one life by giving a child a helmet” initiative in Thailand.
The “La Dolce Vita” charity gala dinner took place on Saturday October 5th at the Astor Ballroom of the St. Regis hotel in Bangkok and included an auction with celebrity guests. The dinner was attended by several famous Thai artists and celebrities including Polpat Asavaprapha, Chalit Nakpawan, Praophan Laohapongchana, Anak Navaraj, Raya Tejapaibul, and Dr. Disaphol Chansiri.
The auction featured art pieces from famous artists and new and vintage limited edition Vespa models, including the Vespa LX125ie Limited Edition “MMFK collaboration 2013,” which was specially produced for this event. The final item at auction was a one-of-a-kind white Vespa 946 which was hand-painted by Thai artist Navin Rawanchaikul. Vespiario Thailand will donate the proceeds of the dinner and auction to AIP Foundation’s efforts to promote child helmet use and increase road safety in Thailand.
