Chocolate, charity make for a good mix

If you love chocolate and want to help out a good cause benefiting young women and girls in the community, an upcoming event in View Royal can help you tick both those boxes.

Soroptimist International of Victoria Westshore is hosting the fifth annual Flavour of Chocolate culinary competition and fundraiser gala April 6 at the Elements Casino Platinum Room. Five local chefs will compete for guests’ votes by creating small, savoury plates that each incorporate an element of chocolate, with the evening topped off with a decadent chocolate dessert.

Besides celebrating the elegance and extravagance of chocolate and showcasing some of the region’s best chefs, the event raises both awareness of the Soroptimist club and funding for its important programs, which educate and empower women and girls and help create opportunities to transform their lives.

There will be live and silent auctions featured, plus live jazz music and a presentation of financial awards to five young local women to further their education.

Tickets are $90 each, available at sivw.ca/foc, where you can also find information about sponsorships or auction item donation.
