It’s More Than Just Chocolate

The excitement is palpable as we gear up for the 32nd Annual Chocolate Fantasy & Chili Too! After all, what could be better than eating chocolate? Add in delicious chili (with all the fixings), live entertainment, celebrity servers, a silent auction and jar raffle, and you’ve got one incredible event. But behind its chocolatey façade is an event that truly makes a difference in the lives of women and children in our community.

For the past 32 years, Chocolate Fantasy & Chili Too! has been helping the YWCA on its mission to provide the tools and resources that women and children need to begin a new chapter in life. Our services begin by meeting basic needs such as safe shelter, food, personal hygiene items, and clothing. Once these needs are met, we turn to advocacy, supportive services and empowerment. We offer each woman the support she needs to find peace and begin recovering physically, emotionally, and spiritually from the damaging effects of poverty and violence. Wherever a woman may be on her journey, we walk alongside her to ensure she is well-equipped to reach her goals, live independently, and pursue her ultimate life.

See the impact that events like this had on the women and children we served last year:

It’s more than just chocolate. The purchase of one $15 ticket will provide a week of food for a child at the Emergency Shelter. By attending Chocolate Fantasy & Chili Too! you are partnering with our mission and with every bite; you are changing the course of her life.
