Girls’ Day Out at The Village Shops Benefitting Naples Children & Education Foundation!

The Naples Winter Wine Festival is held in each year consisting of brunches, lunches, dinners, and auctions, all of which raise money forNaples Children & Education Foundation. NCEF strives to make a profound and sustaining difference in the quality of children’s lives. Since its inception in 2001, the Naples Winter Wine Festival has raised more than $176 million for children in need, as a result, improving the lives of over 200,000 underprivileged and at-risk children in Collier County.

The Village Shops on Venetian Bay is a strong advocate of helping children in Southwest Florida, donating over $40,000 a year to more than a dozen local charities. The Girls’ Day Out online auction package is another way The Village Shops gives back to the community while creating fun, fashion-filled day for several lucky Naples’ residents.

On Friday, April 27th, the lucky winner of this years’ Girls’ Day Out silent auction package enjoyed a complimentary day of shopping, pampering, and delectable dining with friends. Janet and Astrid started out their morning at J&K Collections. With help from the ever-fashionable store associates, the ladies had fitting rooms full of items to try on and model. J&K Collections was a success as the ladies walked out styling statement cuff rings.

At Sara Campbell the ladies were greeted with mimosas. The fun continued, sipping mimosas and trying on dress after dress. Both ladies decided on beautiful pink dresses from the Summer 2018 Collection, compliments of The Village Shops.

A morning of shopping worked up an appetite! Janet and Astrid stopped at MiraMare Ristorante to enjoy a delicious lunch overlooking the Venetian Bay. After lunch the shopping continued at Wildflower Boutique and Diane’s Fine Fashions.

Next stop was Robert of Philadelphia for blowouts and styles. The ladies sat back and relaxed while the talented stylists worked their magic. Janet and Astrid headed to Sukie’s Wine Shop feeling like super models with an extra shine and bounce in their step.

A knowledgeable sommelier at Sukie’s provided samples of the many premium wines the shop has to offer. The ladies sipped in style, using the beautiful Venetian stemware they received from Canasova Glass & Art.

The lovely ladies ended their night on a positive (and delicious) note, with a dinner at Fish Restaurant, accompanied by their husbands. They enjoyed top-of-the-line seafood, beautiful waterfront views, and great company.

Mark your calendars – January 14, 2019 through January 30, 2019 – for the Naples Winter Wine Festival Online Auction. Don’t miss your chance to win a memorable day on the Bay, while supporting a worthy cause!
