Valentine’s Event: 3rd Annual Chocolate Festival to Benefit St. Jude Children’s Hospital

Just in time for Valentine’s Day is a *sweet* event to consider attending! The 3rd Chocolate Festival & Pastry Show will be held on February 11, 1 pm-5 pm at the Olympic Collection in West LA. Even sweeter than the terrific wines, spirits, and chocolates that will be served and sampled is that the event benefits St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Now that’s what we call love.

The event will feature some of the best sweets in the world paired with the world’s top Champagnes, wines, and spirits. It will also feature four hours of Live Celebrity Chef demos, including Annette Starbuck.

This year’s chocolate festival master of ceremony will be Fox 11 news anchor Christine Devine  A message from Carmit Bachar, formerly of the Pussy Cat Dolls follows below. The Pacific Punch’s Liesl Jackson will be covering the event for us and we hope to see you all there too!
