Okay, sure:

First up, it all goes down on 2/6/14 from 6-9 pm at the Stamford Marriott and tickets are $50 in advance (purchase them here) or $60 after February 3.  Good news, too:  100% of the tickets sold go directly to the Shelter for the Homeless.  This annual event is always a major fundraiser and with the crazy temperatures we’ve been experiencing lately, those without a home need the help even more.

You probably heard us talking about the Chocolate World Expo being held on 1/27, but didn’t you know that the love of chocolate and all things sweet never end?  Yes, it’s true!  Even if you filled up on chocolate then, by the time 2/7 comes along for the Chocolate, Dessert, & Wine Lover’s Evening you’ll be ready for some more!

Now, look at this line up of chocolate crammers, cupcake creators, sweets sharers, and drink dabblers!  You’ll also notice from the lineup that there will be a Valentine Gift Boutique where you can purchase some non-sweet goodies for your little pooh bear.  This all goes down on February 7 from 6-9 pm at the Stamford Marriott as part of the Chocolate, Dessert, & Wine Lover’s Evening to raise money for Shelter for the Homeless.  Tickets are just $45 if you buy tickets on or before 2/6 or will be $50 when you buy them on the day of the event.  Either way, all of the money is going to help out Shelter for the Homeless, so you’ll definitely want to get your tickets.  Plus, you can look forward to auctions, live music, raffles, and lots more.  Here are all the great food and drinks that will be available, plus we’re adding in the stores that will be a part of the boutique.  Ciao.
