The Loudoun YMCA hosts an event every year called “Chocolates Galore and More.” I am pretty sure that this event is something that we all need after these past few weeks of that stressful white stuff. “Chocolates Galore and More” will be held this year on February 19 from 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm at West Belmont Place at The National Conference Center in Lansdowne, Virginia. This will be the 22nd year that “Chocolates Galore and More” has been held, and each year it gets bigger and better, oh how could that be. “Chocolates Galore and More” will feature luscious chocolates, exquisite desserts and mouth-watering hors d’oeuvres prepared by the area’s finest restaurants and caterers. You will also be able to sample a specially selected tasting of Tarara Wines. In case you don’t know Tarara’s D9 pairs exquisitely with anything chocolate, a personal favorite. Just to round out the evening there will also be locally roasted coffee from Central Coffee Roasters. All food prepared for the event will be judged in a competition by three guest judges one of which is Chef Bryan Voltaggio, chef and owner of VOLT Restaurant in Frederick, Md. Bryan was recently on Bravo’s Top Chef.
The proceeds from “Chocolates Galore and More” go to support the YMCA’s Loudoun County’s Building Bridges annual giving campaign. This helps to provide essential scholarships.
