For the Love of Chocolate 2012
At this, Chicago's favorite February fund raiser, the black tie crowd came together and raised over $100,000 for scholarships to The French Pastry School. Taking up the entire first floor of the Merchandise Mart, one of the largest buildings in the world, there was lots to enjoy: Redmoon Theater entertainers creating a surreal atmosphere, Venetian Carnival , Sweet as Sin (Hell), Confectiatory- cutting edge food delectables, Chocolate Spa-with massages and Cocoa Sutra. Additionally 50 top chefs from around the country presented sweet and savory delights.
The evenings collective highlight, was the fashion show featuring local pastry chefs and their confectionery clad models. For the grand finale the 6 year old Abby Wodrich walked the runway as the candy princes. (The event originated to raise funds to defray the costs of her kidney transplant.) A celebratory event indeed!
