2019 Naples Winter Wine Festival hopes to raise millions for children

Hundreds of guests will donate money to help children in need, all while enjoying the best culinary creations Naples has to offer.

Wine and children don’t usually mix, but this weekend is a different story.

A lot of the people who attend this weekend’s festival are big donors, and they’re ready to open their wallets for a good cause.

The Naples Winter Wine Festival benefits the Naples Children and Education Foundation—an organization that funds nearly 50 different charities in Collier County.

People who come to the Ritz Carlton this weekend will bid on high ticket items like expensive wine, cars and trips around the world. Organizers say without these prizes, the opportunities for kids wouldn’t be possible.

They say they raised $15.2 million in 2017 and then $15.5 million in 2018, and of course, they hope to exceed that goal this year.
