An Elegant Affair Celebrating Wine & Chocolate
Please see our Facebook page for pictures from 2018
Each year, the Board Members of the United Way of Southern Chester County host an extraordinary evening celebrating the divinely decadent world of chocolate at a private residence in and around the magnificent southern Chester County landscape. This benefit serves as a unique and intimate way to interact with the dedicated volunteers and supporters of your local United Way. This event compliments the yearly fundraiser, Kennett Chocolate Lover's Festival, and provides a platform to indulge in the winners' chocolate creations among other sweet treats, along with local wineries' finest vintages - a perfect balance to the tempting confections.
