Amalfi Coast Luxury Hotels Raise Money to Fight Covid-19

Five of the Amalfi Coast’s luxury accommodations have come together to create a unique opportunity to raise money to fund vaccine research for Covid-19. Created by the Il San Pietro di Positano, Le Sirenuse, Palazzo Avino, Hotel Santa Caterina, and Don Alfonso 1890, the fundraiser aims to raise €200,000 by offering 40 vouchers worth €5,000 each that can then be used for a stay in the next two years at your chosen hotel. The money raised will be donated to the G. Pascale Foundation at the Istituto Nazionale Tumori in Naples, the Fondazione Melanoma Onlus, and the Rome-based biotech company Takis. Together they are working on a vaccine for Covid-19 and the funding will help continue this vital research. Each voucher includes a 2 night luxury stay, other exclusive perks, and dinner at the stellar Don Alfonso 1890 restaurant.

This challenging time has left many of us asking how we can help. My thoughts there are to always start where you are: with your family, with your friends, in your neighborhood, in your town. However, I wanted to share about this local initiative in case you were interested in combining a holiday on the Amalfi Coast with a good cause. There will surely be more ways to help the Amalfi Coast in the future and I’ll be providing updates here on Ciao Amalfi. For more information or to purchase a voucher, contact any of the hotels participating: Don Alfonso 1890 in Sant’Agata sui Due Golfi, Il San Pietro di Positano or Le Sirenuse in Positano, Palazzo Avino in Ravello, or the Hotel Santa Caterina in Amalfi.
