Chocolate galore

Kids Against Hunger and Chocolate Club co-host event

Want to have a sweet time this Friday night? Tonight, Feb. 6, the first Chocolate Banquet will be held in the Thwing Ballroom at 6:30 p.m. It will be a sweet fest with all sorts of chocolate desserts, such as s’more bars, Oreo pops, chocolate pies, cakes, cookies and even a chocolate fountain.

Kids Against Hunger is hosting this event, with the help of the Chocolate Club. All of the proceeds from the event will go towards KAH’s Spring Packing Event, where they will pack 50,000 meals to join in the battle against hunger in the local community.

It will be formal to semi-formal event, where all guests will enjoy a dinner prepared by La Trattoria and listen to a guest speaker and a DJ.

The guest speaker will be Sandra Beard, a representative from Cleveland Food Bank. She will share her experience and give more information with dealing with local hunger.

DJ Matt Moy will follow Beard, who will provide all of the music for dancing and an exciting atmosphere during the event.

This event is a fundraising opportunity for students to learn more about ways to fight hunger as well as enjoy themselves with music, dancing and of course, the delicious dinner and chocolate desserts.

Ann Payneau, KAH’s Marketing Director, is looking forward to the event. “This is a great way for people to have fun and get [KAH] known,” said Payneau.

So, go check it out. Each ticket will come with five tokens to be used on any of the chocolate deserts of your choice. And no worries, there is going to be a lot of chocolate to choose from.
