Give your sweet tooth a treat and support a good cause by attending the 16th annual NC State Chocolate Festival. Tickets are now on sale for the popular event, scheduled for 5:30 to 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 28, in the Talley Student Union’s State Ballroom.
The festival benefits the Kay Yow Cancer Fund as well as the sponsoring organization, the NC State Women’s Center.
“The Chocolate Festival is a time-honored tradition at NC State,” says Janine Kossen, the center’s associate director. “Over the past 15 years, participants have raised tens of thousands of dollars in support of breast cancer awareness, leading to important research and prevention efforts that reach well beyond our campus community.”
Attendees receive a pink box and six chocolate samples of their choice from a large array of vendor booths and tables. The festival also features face painting, games, a silent auction and resources to increase breast cancer awareness.
