Regional Dinner: Food & Wine From Naples

The Food & Beverage and Events Committees are pleased to open bookings for the Naples Regional Dinner. Join us on Saturday, March 4, for a cocktail reception at 6:30 PM. Dinner at 7:15pm. The Events Committee has arranged for Charlie Romo to join us to add great music to the evening. Proceeds from the evening pay tribute to longtime Member Anthony Correra through support for the scholarship fund in his name.
