I mentioned the Naples Winter Wine Fest in passing last week- but looks like I should have been paying more attention. They raised over $20 million in auctions for the Naples Children & Education Foundation. About 600 auction attendees bid on 43 lots of wine, jewelry, luxury automobiles, international trips, and many other one-of-a-kind experiences. But, it’s not over - the auction continues until tomorrow, February 1st at https://nwwfonlineauction.com. NCEF will use the funds accumulated from this year’s event to award grants on March 14 to local organizations and fund strategic initiatives supporting local children in need. To get more info on the event and the lots auctioned - head to https://www.gulfshorebusiness.com/nwwf/

Congratulations to David Hiler, and Tim and Amy Brady, owners of Whetstone Brands (including Whetstone Craft Beers, Whetstone Station Brewery and Taproom, and River Garden Marketplace in Brattleboro, and Kampfires Campground, Inn & Entertainment in Dummerston). They were named by the Vermont Brattleboro Area Chamber of Commerce as “2021 Entrepreneurs of the Year” at the organization’s annual meeting, January 25. The award comes in as Whetstone Station Brewery (the trio’s first project together) is celebrating their 10th anniversary! Apparently, it stemmed from a chance meeting in 2011 that blossomed! Since I have had a taste of what they’ve become - I can’t wait to see how they continue to grow over the next ten years! https://vermontbiz.com/news/2022/january/30/whetstone-owners-named-bacc-entrepreneurs-year

And The Coca‑Cola Company and Molson Coors are expanding their relationship and the FAB (Flavored Alcoholic Beverage) category. Look for Simply Spiked Lemonade™ variety 12-packs to launch this summer. The duo will offer four refreshing flavors, made with real fruit juice; Lemonade, Strawberry Lemonade, Watermelon Lemonade, and Blueberry Lemonade. They’ll be canned in 12-oz. slims, with some available in single 24-oz. cans. The 12 ounces contain 170-calories and 5% ABV. https://www.coca-colacompany.com/news/simply-spiked-lemonade-announcement
