Benefit of Chocolate

Benefit of Chocolate

 

This year’s gala fundraiser, the Benefit of Chocolate, was an entertaining and memorable evening for all. On June 7th, over 150 guests from the surrounding communities joined us at Westwood Country Club in Vienna, VA to enjoy delicious chocolate and wine pairings, experience some old fashioned magic with Eric Henning and live jazz by a George Mason University trio. Local chocolatiers from Artisan Confections, Cocoa Vienna, the Capital Candy Jar and Chouquette donated their time and delicious treats, while Ethel M Chocolates also donated chocolate for a beautiful and delicious display. Guests that evening also enjoyed an exciting silent auction. All proceeds from the event will go directly to the Center, so we may continue to fulfill our mission in providing personally meaningful programs within a supportive and peer-driven environment that is affordable for all stroke and brain trauma survivors.
