SWFL Children’s Charities, Inc. announces its new Wine Fest @Home package as well as its “Where in Southwest Florida is Jean-Charles Boisset?” social media campaign. The new aspects offer an engaging and creative way for the public to show their support for the organization and its mission to provide pediatric healthcare throughout Southwest Florida.

The new Wine Fest @Home package allows audiences to safely participate in the SWFL Wine & Food Festival from the comfort of their own home. The package includes a four-course meal prepared by Chef Brian Roland of Crave Culinaire and two bottles of wine from the organization’s 2021 vintner selections. If you order two meals, you will receive the complete set of four different bottles of wines to complete the special wine pairing as well as some additional branded items to round out the experience.

The Wine Fest @Home meal will be fully prepared and will come with re-heating instructions as necessary. Meal is only available in the Southwest Florida region and will require pick-up. That location is to be determined and dependent on number of orders placed, etc. Wine Fest @Home experience is $350 per person.

Participants will receive a link to attend the virtual event from their computer or other smart device. The event, which will be held on Apr. 24, 2021, will feature a combination of live and pre-recorded segments. This includes stories of children and families who have been affected by pediatric healthcare challenges within the region, a preview of auction items, mobile bidding and entertainment.

SWFL Children’s Charities is launching a social media campaign called “Where in Southwest Florida is Jean-Charles Boisset?” Jean-Charles Boisset of the Boisset Collection is this year’s honored signature vintner for the SWFL Wine & Food Festival. The campaign will feature JCB’s signature bobble head in various locations across Southwest Florida.

The organization’s followers will have the opportunity to guess the location of where JCB is in the photo for a chance to win a Boisset Collection themed prize. The competition will be held on SWFL Children’s Charities’ Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. New pictures of JCB’s bobble head will be posted every Wednesday at 4 pm and the first post is scheduled to launch on Mar. 31. Participants will need to answer within 24 hours and have a total of four opportunities to win.

The organization is using Google Forms to keep track of all submissions and the winners will be chosen at random. To participate, follow SWFL Children’s Charities on Instagram @SWFLChildrensCharities,, or Wine-Food Fest. Contestants should use the hashtag #WheresJCBSWFL.

Funds raised at the auction will benefit SWFL Children’s Charities, Inc.’s efforts to provide lifesaving care and lasting solutions that enable a secure future for the children of Southwest Florida. Proceeds will support pediatric health care services at Golisano Children’s Hospital, specifically the new SWFL Children’s Charities Eye Institute.
