SUMMARY: The Friends of GAIN (Growing Associates In Naples) is hosting a Celebrity Bartender Night Friday to benefit local charities.

The Naples Chamber of Commerce designed the GAIN program specifically for emerging leaders and professionals in Collier County of ages 21-40. Over a three-month period, participants go through a six-session series of workshops and facilitated networking programs focused on professional development and peer networking. Graduates of the program continue to coordinate community outreach events throughout the year to help improve the lives of Collier residents.

The cost is $20/person and includes one drink, pizza, pasta and sushi.

The Friends of GAIN are asking for food donations of dry and canned goods including tuna, fruit, cereal, and peanut butter. Diapers size 4, 5 and 6 and baby wipes will also be accepted.

All proceeds will benefit the St. Matthew’s House and Immokalee Multicultural Multipurpose Community Action Agency.
