Chocolates For Christmas With A Possible Bonus

Have a chocolate lover to shop for this holiday season? Soroptimists of Fond du Lac are selling half-pound boxes of assorted chocolates from End of the Trail Candy Shoppe, and each box comes with a bonus: a chance to win a chocolate and white diamond pendant from C.W. Smith Jewelers, valued at $1,000. The chocolates are being sold as a fund-raiser in advance of their annual Chocolate Fantasy event on Sunday, Jan. 25, 2015, where the winner of the necklace will be chosen.

The chocolates are $10 and for sale at Bank Mutual, C.W. Smith Jewelers, Fox Valley Savings Bank, Hometown Bank on Peters Avenue, Jacobson Farmers Supply in Brownsville, American Bank in Brownsville, The Village Flower Shoppe in Mayville and any Soroptimist member.

Chocolate Fantasy again will be held at Knights of Columbus Hall, 795 Fond du Lac Ave., in Fond du Lac, featuring samples of chocolate confections, a giant silent auction and cash and prize raffles.

Chocolate Fantasy tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door and are available at Bank Mutual, C.W. Smith Jewelers, EP-Direct Printing, Fond du Lac Convention & Visitors Bureau, Fox Valley Savings Bank, Wegner Office Supply and from Soroptimist members.

Each year, a local charity is chosen to receive proceeds from the event. The 2015 event will benefit Girls on the Run Fond du Lac, which works to inspire girls in grade three through eight “to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.”
