Business jet fractional provider Flexjet is donating 23 flight hours that will be auctioned or raffled this weekend at the Naples Winter Wine Festival to benefit the Naples Children & Education Foundation. This includes 15 flight hours in a Flexjet Bombardier Challenger 300 as an event raffle and eight hours in a super-midsize jet as part of an auction getaway to St. Barths.
Flexjet is also once again a corporate sponsor of the annual festival in Southwest Florida that supports the foundation, which provides financial assistance to organizations focused on child advocacy, early learning, education programs, and healthcare to children in need in Collier County. The annual festival features auctions, raffles, and fine food and wine, and has generated nearly $244 million for 50 organizations serving 300,000 children since 2001.
“We are proud to once again be the festival’s partner in improving outcomes for underprivileged and at-risk children in the Naples area,” said Flexjet chief marketing officer Lauren Florian. “Particularly since this year’s festival follows so closely on the damage caused by Hurricane Ian, we look forward to a successful festival that provides the community with the support it needs for full recovery.”
