For those dreaming of a "sweet" Spanish style getaway, an evening at the 18th Annual Chocolate Lovers' Gala, set for March 26 at Comcast Arena, just might fit the bill.
The evening, a fundraiser for Domestic Violence Services of Snohomish County, features beautiful traditional dancers of Latinos Unidos and a mariachi band for a "Noché de Chocolaté!" DVS was formerly known as the Center for Battered Women.
As in the past, the extravaganza promises to be an exciting, festive and very chocolate-y event. The evening will begin with over 200 silent items up for bid, followed by a Spanish-themed dinner, the famous "Chocolate Dessert Dash," and an exciting live auction featuring emcee Bob Drewel and auctioneer April Brown.
"Noché de Chocolaté is just the way to begin your spring time activities," said Margaret Bruland, executive director of Domestic Violence Services of Snohomish County. "Wonderful gift packages, from getaways to gotta-haves, airline tickets, theatre tickets, hotel stays, fantastic baskets and more will be going to the highest bidder," she said.
Invitations and tickets are available through March 23. Ticket prices are $75 for individuals, $70 per person for couples and entire tables of 10 are available for $650. The doors will open at 5:30 p.m. the night of the benefit.
