Chocolate Fantasy raises $150,000 for Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Redlands-Riverside

The 25th annual Chocolate Fantasy shattered records, bringing in more than $150,000 for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Redlands-Riverside.

“We’re grateful for all of the board members, volunteers, local businesses, dignitaries, and staff who made Chocolate Fantasy such a success for over 25 years,” Club CEO P.T. McEwen said in a statement.

Held every February, Chocolate Fantasy is a night filled with food, dancing, live and silent auctions, and, of course, lots and lots of chocolate. More than 250 people attended this year’s event at the Mitten Building, with new perks including a signature cocktail and swag bag.

Parliament Chocolate was voted Best Chocolatier, while Lunch at the Mitten Building was named Best Restauranteur and Chef Erin’s Confections won Best Decorations. Auction items included tickets to Hamilton on Broadway; tickets and a trip to Las Vegas to see Paul McCartney in concert; and a vacation in Rome and Tuscany. —Catherine
