Just when you thought fundraisers couldn’t get any more delicious than Baconfest, a generous Winnipegger served up our city’s first Chocoholic’s Buffet with proceeds going to the United Way.
The event was the creation of Anna Echols, food blogger for LunchFor1.com. Featuring a 24-foot long buffet table packed full of high quality chocolate desserts at the Gates on Roblin, the event presented guests with a wide selection of chocolate dessert specialties prepared and donated by many of the leading pastry chefs and chocolate artists in and around Winnipeg.
When all the chocolate had been devoured, a grand total of more than $6200 was raised for the United Way of Winnipeg. A huge thank you to Anna, all of the volunteers, sponsors, and participating restaurants for your support! The next Chocoholics Buffet is already planned for Saturday, March 22, 2014 – see you there!
