On November 4, 2017 the CHS South Florida Chapter held the Banfi Food & Wine Festival at The Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood, FL. Guests enjoyed award-winning Banfi wines paired with gourmet dishes from six restaurant stations. The waterfront venue provided the perfect laid-back atmosphere for guests to mingle and bid on exciting silent auction items. Afterwards guests headed to the hidden lounge, Nokku, inside the Diplomat for the after party. A special thank you to the event sponsors Castello Banfi, JW Marriott Turnberry Miami and JW Marriot Nashville for making this special event possible! This was the Chapter’s largest fundraising event of the year and proceeds will benefit the CHS South Florida Student Scholarship Fund.
