Eliminating racism and empowering women become less daunting tasks when coupled with chocolate. Chocolate has the magical ability to lighten any load. Which is why the women behind Salt Lake’s YWCA are geniuses.
The YWCA Chocolate Carnivale, Salt Lake’s very own grandiose chocolate extravaganza, will be held this Saturday, Feb. 10. The party starts at 7 p.m. at the Salt Lake Hardware building (two blocks north of the Gateway mall), and includes chocolate fountains with fresh fruit, cream puffs, brownies, fudge and delicacies from the likes of Faustina, Maxfield Chocolates and more. Drooling yet?
Treat your spouse or make it a night with the girls, who undoubtedly share your chocolate fixation. Tickets with pre-registration are $10 for YWCA members, and $15 for non-members. A one-year YWCA membership, admission included, is $35. Sign up for membership, and gain access to exclusive goodies like free psychic readings and chair massages, and the chance to win prizes from Shade Clothing, OC Tanner, Z Pizzeria, Seraph Stationery (which is totally worth checking out) and Red Rock Brewing Co., among others. Imagine all this, drizzled in chocolate. (Except the pizza; pizza and chocolate do not mix. Chocolate and OC Tanner jewelry, on the other hand…)
All proceeds will benefit the Salt Lake YWCA. To learn more about how it helps women and children who are escaping family violence, aids children who are victims of family violence, reaches out to teen mothers, and other ways the YWCA works to generally bring about world peace and happiness, click here.
