Raise a Glass—and (Virtual) Paddle

The Naples Winter Wine Festival isn’t letting COVID-19 get in the way of programming that unites Neapolitans in support of a worthy cause.

The Naples Winter Wine Festival is a whole lot different this year. While there are no live in-person events, there will be a live telethon that anyone and everyone can watch on WINK-TV on Saturday, January 30, from 7 to 8 p.m. that will highlight the groundbreaking work the Naples Children & Education Foundation does and the impact it has on the community. A private virtual live auction (tickets are required) will take place at 8 p.m. that evening. Running concurrently, an online auction that is open to the general public kicked off January 22 at 8 a.m. and will close February 2 at 5 p.m., with a bevy of options for bidding.
