With more than 25 participating entrants serving up their most luscious chocolate dishes in hopes of securing top honors in five categories, this is one fundraiser that will be as beneficial for the attendees as it is for the receiving organization.
GuardiaCare’s Chocolate Dreams is touted as ‘an Evening of Decadent Bliss,’ and it is sure to fit the bill, with premier chefs from top area restaurants, including Zi Olive, Corbett’s, Volare, Buck’s, Eiderdown and Varanese, serving up chocolate treats.
Samplers will be given free rein to taste, rank, and even vote for their favorite creation in the People’s Choice Award, all while being entertained by the music of Nervous Melvin and the Mistakes and emcee Dawn Gee of WAVE-3 TV.
And if the chocolate wasn’t enticing enough, GuardiaCare has compiled items for a live and silent auction including:
- Tickets to the 139th Oaks and Kentucky Derby
- Autographed sports memorabilia from Rick Pitino, Charlie Strong, Bobby Petrino, Ray Harper and Scott Davenport
- UPS Flight Simulator
- Vacation for four at Omni Resort, Cancun, Mexico
- Tickets and gift certificates to local hotels, restaurants and attractions
