The Chocolate and Wine Pairing fundraiser was a great success raising over $3,000!

Kate Mahoney provided a great overview of the refugee crisis globally and Kathy Moore shared information on the families we are sponsoring.

Trish from Mountain Nugget provided great content on the chocolate as well as pairing notes and the silent auction was filled with great items to bid on.


Thank you to Jennifer Vogel for organizing the event.  Hopefully this will become an annual fundraiser!
