For the Love of Chocolate Lets You Experience Old World Elegance at a New Venue!
Chicago, Illinois (February 27, 2013) – After the rush of the holidays, Chicagoans prepare for a highlight in their long winter: For the Love of Chocolate Scholarship Foundation’s Annual Gala, a sweet feast for the senses dedicated to raising scholarships for dedicated students of the pastry arts. In its eighth year on Saturday, February 23rd, the event devoted itself to making its guests feel like stars for their contribution to scholarships for future students of The French Pastry School of Kennedy-King College at City Colleges of Chicago. The historic venue, Union League Club of Chicago, lent the perfect ambience to bring life to the theme of Old Hollywood Glamour – soaring ceilings, rich wood paneling, lavish chandeliers, and an unmatched collection of artwork served as an elegant backdrop for the over 800 party-goers. For some guests, the evening began with a five-course dinner by a collection of Chicago’s greatest chefs but all ended their night indulging in decadent sweets and lively tunes in the Dessert Dance Party. Thanks to all of the attendees, participants, volunteers, and the incredible sponsors of For the Love of Chocolate, the foundation netted $106,000; all of which will go to funding student scholarships for L’Art de la Pâtisserie and L’Art du Gâteau programs.
Thank you to the Foundation Sponsors:
