We enjoyed seeing those who were able to attend our second annual Leadership Circle wine tasting party, “Italy Comes to Florida”, on Wednesday, November 13 in the JI Ballroom.  As our guests sipped an incredible array of fine Tuscan wines from Banfi Vintners, donated by the ever-generous Mariani family, they were treated to delicious Floridian food specialties prepared by our very own Chef Farnsworth. We thank our wonderful sponsors, Northern Trust and John’s Island Real Estate, for supporting this unforgettable event.
