Death By Chocolate Not Breast Cancer – A Fundraiser For Breast Cancer Research
NEW ORLEANS (press release) – “Breast Cancer is the leading cause of cancer in women and a disease that has touched someone we know – yet how to get involved in the fight can be difficult” say Carol Osborne, president. That is why Krewe de Pink, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, whose sole mission is to raise money for Breast Cancer Research at the Tulane Cancer Center has created another fun way for people to support Breast Cancer Research. The event, Death by Chocolate (NOT Breast Cancer), is a chocolate tasting with champagne. The event will be held Friday, Feb. 7 from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. at the Schoen Mansion, 3827 Canal St., New Orleans. Tickets can be purchased online at www.krewedepink.org or Eventbrite and are $25 per person.
Krewe de Pink is working with Delgado Community College’s Culinary and Pastry Arts program. The program is donating the chocolate served at this event through their partner Callebaut Chocolate and their students will be creating the tasty chocolate bites. To support the culinary program there will be a live competition among the program’s culinary and pastry students that evening. Each student will be judged on their chocolate-inspired dishes – both sweet and savory – and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes will be awarded. Guests will participate in the judging and will also receive a goody bag, compliments of Delgado. Music will be provided by Delgado’s Music Department. Hillery Moise, Event Chair likes this hybrid type event stating that “in addition to keeping the money local this event supports students giving them the opportunity to give back to the community while strengthening their skills by applying them to the real world. A Win-Win-Win.”
Death by Chocolate Not Breast Cancer, like its sister fundraisers, the Pink Bra Run and Krewe de Pink Prom directly support Breast Cancer research at the Tulane Cancer Center by earmarking the money for research. All monies donated stay here in New Orleans to support our local economy. Their most recent event, the Krewe de Pink Prom, raised over $35,000 to support advanced research.
Death by Chocolate and Champagne is made possible by the generosity of the beautiful Schoen Mansion, Delgado Community College, Callebaut Chocolate, and members of Krewe de Pink.
