MIAMI BEACH, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#SOBEWFF–The Food Network & Cooking Channel South Beach Wine & Food Festival presented by Capital One (SOBEWFF®) has invited nurses, doctors and healthcare workers from five South Florida hospital systems to attend as guests of the Festival taking place May 20-23, 2021.
