More than 300 guests participated in the Neighborhood Health Clinic’s 15th Annual Gourmet Vintner Dinner, raising funds to provide Collier County’s working, uninsured residents affordable medical and dental care.
The Saturday, February 3, 2018, event featured a sampling of more than 10 wine-makers selected by The Ritz-Carlton’s Sommelier, a gourmet dinner, live entertainment with dancing, the Save-A-Life fundraiser, live auction, grand prize drawing and, new this year, the Pass the Hat fundraiser.
Major corporate sponsors included presenting sponsors Pat and Vince Foglia, Platinum sponsor Athrex, Gold sponsors DeAngelis Diamond and é Bella Magazine.
The event was held at The Ritz-Carlton, Naples. With the expertise of Ft. Myers Auctioneer Jon Finstrom, and his generous donation of a live auction to the event, the Clinic raised $1.1 million for patient services.
