Flexjet will serve as a lead donor and festival partner of the 2024 Naples Winter Wine Festival for the third straight year.

The fractional and jet card operator will also have a Sikorsky S-76 helicopter from its Flexjet Helicopter unit on showcase during the festival.

The Naples Winter Wine Festival is scheduled for January 25-28, 2024.

Its airport is one of the nation’s busiest airports for private jets.

Flexjet operates its own private terminal at the airport.

This year, it sponsors the grand prize at the auction – 15 hours of flight time aboard a midsized private jet.

Other donations include eight hours of flight time on a midsized aircraft, a two-day winemaking experience in Sonoma, and a seven-night ski trip to Vail for eight people.

You can also bid for one hour of flight time on a Sikorsky S-76 helicopter, plus a driving experience at The Concours Club in Miami and dinner at Verge, which serves a menu developed by Chef Brad Kilgore, a James Beard Award nominee.

Since its first year of participation, donations by Flexjet are estimated to have generated more than $28 million for Naples-area charities.

“We are honored to renew our commitment as a dedicated partner of the Naples Winter Wine Festival, which not only stands as one of the world’s most prestigious celebrations of fine wines but also shines brightly as an unparalleled force for philanthropy,” said Flexjet co-CEO Mike Silvestro.

He adds, “We are proud to contribute to the success of this remarkable charity, touching the lives of hundreds of thousands of children across Southwest Florida and creating a legacy of hope and positive transformation.”
