We are planning another year of Culinary Adventures!

The third year of Culinary Adventure That Gives Back will be held in January, February and March of 2023. Join us for one or all of three exciting small table luncheons presented by 16+ of Naples best restaurants and chefs. Each luncheon, with a small group of guests, will feature a three-course meal, wine and special interaction and presentations by the chef, creating a memorable experience for the guests. Guests don’t find out where they are going until they get a personal invitation from the chef for an adventure that promises to fun!
This program was developed as a way to support the many restaurants who make Naples very special and and to provide grants to community agencies that are addressing issues like hunger and homelessness in Collier County.
Tickets go on sale in the fall online on our website. Opportunities for sponsorship for this event are still available; contact Stacy Vermylen at email@example.com for details.
