This year’s festival celebrates art, food and Italian wines and marks the world debut of BAROQUE PAINTINGS IN LOMBARDY FROM THE PINACOTECA DI BRERA.Â Â We expect several hundred community and business leaders to attend this event, as well as Italian dignitaries, providing great exposure for local businesses.Â We invite Wakulla County businesses to participate in our Business Showcase and Silent Auction .
The Wine Festival’s silent auction will be held Friday, March 18, 2011 during the Wine Festival Reception, which is scheduled from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.Â In celebration of the Baroque exhibition, the silent auction will be designed as an Italian Piazza.Â Silent auction tables will beÂ interwoven with our Business Showcase peaked tents.Â The purpose of the Business Showcase is to highlight the distinct and thriving business areas of our community.
We invite the Wakulla County Chamber to showcase itself within a Business Showcase tent, perhaps with a “Wild About Wakulla” theme.Â In conjunction, we would like Wakulla County businesses to donate promotional silent auction items to correspond with the County’s tent theme.Â We also have vending opportunities for businesses during the next day free community event.
We thank Wakulla County Chamber members for their consideration of this event opportunity and invite them to join The Brogan Museum in its efforts to promote North Florida as a vibrant business community with a strong commitment to art and science education.
