The Islander Wine Dinner hosted by Bailey's General Store raised a total of $13,900 for The Community House on Sanibel, which is operated by the Sanibel Community Association.

The sold-out six-course dinner was held on July 31 at the venue.

Ben McClure, certified wine specialist and brand ambassador of Talbott Vineyards, was the featured guest speaker. The locally-sourced cuisine was prepared by Sanibel Catering Company's Chef Karl and paired with Talbott's 100-percent estate-grown wines, including from its Sleepy Hollow Vineyard.
