A few days before Valentine’s Day, things will be a bit sweeter in northeastern Indiana, and for a good cause. The Kiwanis Club of John Chapman Foundation is hosting ChocolateFest 2022 at the Orchid Event Center in New Haven, Indiana. The Orchid Event Center is located at 11508 Lincoln Highway East. The event will begin at 6 p.m. and end at 9 p.m. Tickets are $40 per person.
The Kiwanis Club focuses on success for kids, and funds raised will support the mission. According to visitfortwayne.com, “The Kiwanis Club of John Chapman Foundation’s general service area is the 11 counties of Northeast Indiana.”
The Kiwanis Club provides a variety of enriching services to more than 7000 children “without regard to race, creed, sexual preference, or religion.”
Why chocolate?: the Kiwanis Club and ChocolateFest 2022
According to visitfortwayne.com, chocolate was chosen as the theme for the fundraising gala because of the substance’s ability to make people feel good. By extension, attendees should feel good about helping the Kiwanis Club, which does positive things for area children.
Financial support allows the Kiwanis Club to help organizations such as Early Childhood Education, Big Brothers/Big Sister’s Skating Party, Inner City Scouts, Developmentally Disabled Action Service Club, Woodburn Children’s Home, and others.
A scrumptious night is planned for ChocolateFest 2022. Three all-you-can-eat chocolate dipping stations will have white, milk, and dark chocolate. Chocolate desserts will be available, in addition to a make-your-own sundae bar. Perhaps to offset all the chocolate, a full dinner will be served.
Live music will be provided by Al Parr and his Creole Candy Band. Thus, it seems that there will be plenty of opportunity for activity after all of the eating. While the vibe will be casual, the dress code is elegant, so those wishing to attend should dress up for a good cause.
An event like this so close to Valentine’s Day could serve as an early outing for the 14th. Those who can should attend ChocolateFest 2022. The serious fun that supports necessary work for the community, should not be missed.
