Humankind’s love affair with chocolate stretches across millennia.
It has become the perfect all-occasion gift and the subject of much celebration – especially at Salmon Arm’s annual Death by Chocolate, which takes place at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 14 at the Seniors Fifth Avenue Activity Centre.
The dessert extravaganza is a fundraiser organized by a committee that makes local performances by the Kamloops Symphony possible. Joyce Henderson, Cilla Budda, Lynne Wickett, Jeannetta Zorn and Erika Allwood fundraise to pay for the symphony’s transportation to Salmon Arm and give the performers a meal.
Death by Chocolate is an evening of romantic music and heavenly desserts, but you don’t have to be part of a couple to enjoy the love of chocolate and fine music. Music will be provided by Andrea Roberts, accompanied by Jim Johnston and Naomi Cloutier, harpist with the Kamloops Symphony.
Raffle tickets will be available at $10 for one or $20 for three and include spectacular prizes such as a Kamloops package with an overnight stay, dinner and a symphony performance; artwork, dinner and a Shuswap Theatre production, tickets to Caravan Farm theatre’s spring production and more.
Bid in the silent auction and enjoy a drink from the cash wine bar.
Tickets at $25 are available at Salmon Arm Stationery.
