Retro Gives Back – MS Center ‘Vintage Affair’

NAPLES, FL – “A Vintage Affair: Night of a Thousand Wines” lived up to its billing on March 10, 2019, at the gala fundraiser for the Multiple Sclerosis Center of Southwest Florida held at Quail West Golf & Country Club. Old World vineyard décor including wine barrels and vintage trellises set the stage for an evening of dinner, dancing and bidding.
A wine tasting on the outdoor patio as the sun set featured music by guitarist Tom E. Gordon, pianist Doug Williams and generous pours of wines from Italy, Spain, France and the Napa Valley. Musical group Billy Dean & Dawn also entertained.

Emcee was WINK TV anchorwoman Amanda Hall. Auctioneer was Jon Finstrom.  

Dozens of wines and wine country trips were auctioned, contributing to the evening’s fundraising total of $260,000. The proceeds will benefit programs of the nonprofit MS Center. The MS Center has services and classes in several locations throughout Southwest Florida, including therapeutic exercise classes for MS, art classes, counseling, educational seminars and more. New social groups are forming this year for clients to meet new friends and join in fun activities.
