Pampering and Philanthropy…The Perfect Combination provided by The Village Shops, Supporting Naples Children & Education Foundation and the Naples Winter Wine Festival!

Ask any Naples resident what makes the area desirable for everyday living and a number of topics will come to mind – white sandy beaches, top notch dining, one-of-a-kind shopping, and of course the most admirable, philanthropy. Naples is not only naturally exquisite, but also offers an influential community that is extremely philanthropic. With hundreds of local charities in Collier County, there are many opportunities to give back, from donating to sponsorship packages to volunteering and so much more.

The Village Shops on Venetian Bay strongly believes in the importance of community outreach programs and partnerships to give back to those in need. The Village as a whole contributes tens of thousands of dollars to local charities each year one of which is through a silent auction package for the Naples Winter Wine Festival, directly benefitting the Naples Children & Education Foundation. The Village Shops annual silent auction contribution has helped raise thousands of dollars each year directly impacting the $212 million that Naples Winter Wine Festival has raised since its 2001 inception. You heard that right… $212 million!

For the year 2020, The Village Shops brought to the table a whole new vision for the silent auction package with pampering and relaxation in mind. The 2020 package was titled “The Ultimate 7 Night Cruise & Spa Package” with a total value of more than $24,000.  This year’s lucky winner snagged the deal of the year, bidding on and winning the package for $9,000 to further support NCEF and their mission to improvethe physical, emotional, and educational lives of underprivileged and at-risk children in Collier County.

Now that we have struck your curiosity on what is included in a $24,000+ auction package, here is the run down. The lucky winner is ready to gather her girlfriends for a full blown pampering party – both spa services and European travel.

That’s not it! The next step for this lucky group is to pack bags and embark on a 7-day European river cruise on AmaWaterways compliments of Expedia CruiseShipCenters.
