Callebaut Chocolate is donating the chocolate including their new Ruby Chocolate. Delgado Community College’s Culinary and Pastry Arts Program students will be creating 12 tasty chocolate bites. Each student will be judged on their chocolate-inspired dishes – both sweet and savory. First and second place prizes will be awarded in both categories. Guests will participate in the judging, enjoy special Ruby Chocolate confections and receive a goody bag, compliments of Delgado. Delgado’s Music Department, will entertain guests — perfect musical musings to pair with the chocolate and champagne. Hillery Moise, Event Chair welcomes the Six Sweet Survivors. “They are an inspiration to us all and make what we do here so important to the eradication of the disease“ she adds.
Death by Chocolate – Not Breast Cancer, like its sister fundraisers, directly support Breast Cancer research at the Tulane Cancer Center, earmarking the money for research. All monies donated stay here in New Orleans to support our local economy. Their most recent event 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’s Culinary and Pastry Arts program and Music Department, Callebaut Chocolate, and members of Krewe de Pink.
