Trustees of SWFL Children’s Charities

Trustees of SWFL Children’s Charities, Inc. are a group of community members who have dedicated their time and resources in support of the organization’s mission to benefit area children. These individuals profoundly impact the lives and health of children in Southwest Florida through their support of the SWFL Children’s Charities, Inc. and its annual signature event, the Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest.

The trustees are charged with supporting the Wine Fest in many ways, including hosting vintner dinners for the event, donating wine, serving on committees for various aspects of the two day event as well as underwriting the cost of the event. Most importantly, they are among the greatest champions of children’s causes in our community.
