First Bite Success for Restaurants and Humane Society Naples

The inaugural First Bite Menu Release Party presented by Mercedes-Benz of Bonita Springs and Food Idea Group was a huge success for The Humane Society Naples, the SWFL Restaurant Week’s Spring edition benefactor. Over 700 attendees experienced special menu samplings from 30 of the 45 restaurants to be featured during SWFL Restaurant Week Thursday, June 1 – Wednesday, June 14.

A silent auction, craft brewery stations, live painting by Marcus Zotter and much more was included. The Humane Society Naples was on-site with shelter pets during First Bite and two puppies found furever homes! HSN is proud to announce that the premier Food Idea Group event raised over $15,000 for our no-kill shelter.
