Items that remain are donated to the Shelter for Abused Women and Children’s Options Thrift Store. Attendance is free.
Non-profit organizations are offered the opportunity to have tables in the parking lot for a small fee. For inquiries, contact Nancy Herbert, Chair at email@example.com

Empowering Women Luncheon

Over 10 years ago the Empowering Women’s Committee started with a gift of $500 in memory of Dora Valentine, a long time member and supporter of mature women who needed financial assistance in furthering their education. The initiative has grown and now the Club has funded several scholarships for mature women through donations and by hosting a very special luncheon at Windstar Country Club. Speakers include the scholarships recipients. Members of the public are invited to join us, and the net proceeds will benefit the mature women scholarship program.

The second Culinary Adventure That Gives Back will be held in January, February and March of 2022. Join us for one or all of three exciting small table luncheons presented by 16+ of Naples best restaurants and chefs. Each luncheon, with no more than 16-20 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 the serious food insecurity that many Collier County residents are experiencing.
