A Night O' Chocolate - Tues, Apr. 26

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I spoke with Calendar Girl and got permission to post some information about a great food and wine event that is being held next week. The event will raise money to support the program work of two nonprofits in DC that are run for women by women. What makes the event unique is that it's a professional pastry chef competition for women that will be judged by women and it includes a tasting of wines paired with the chocolates.

I know that this is short notice, but it's for a good cause and thought you all might be interested.

So here is the skinny:

A Night O' Chocolate

Are you a chocoholic in search of a fix?

If so, join IWDC and WREI for their Night O' Chocolate fundraiser on April 26, 2011 from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm.

You'll get to taste decadent desserts made by some of DC's rising women pastry chefs and help a good cause--the event is a fundraiser designed to support programs for women around the world.

Hosted by Honorary Chair Jaime Leeds, Chef/Owner of Hanks and Hanks Oyster Bar, the evening includes free tastings of decadent chocolate desserts, a chocolate fountain, and award-winning wines from Fabbioli Cellars of Leesburg.

Night O' Chocolate is being held in the Samuel Gompers Room of AFL-CIO at 815 16th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20006 and judging the event that evening are Ris Lacoste, of the West Ends celebrated Ris restaurant and Dara Bunjon, food media maven of Dara Does It.

Tickets are $50 per person in advance and $75 per person at the door. To purchase tickets via PayPal go here
