Chocolate Rendezvous Event Supports Agriculture Students, Initiatives

SPONSORED

Are you looking for a fun way to celebrate Valentine's Day, while helping a great cause? If so, you're cordially invited to Sauk Valley Community College's Chocolate Rendezvous on Saturday, February 16, 2019 from 6 - 9 pm. The event will be held in multiple areas of the SVCC campus.

"This fabulous evening will offer decadent chocolates, spirits, wine pairings, heavy hors d'oeuvres, and live entertainment," said Lori Cortez, Dean of Institutional Advancement for Sauk Valley Community College. "Last year, more than 400 guests enjoyed an elegant Valentine's Day evening with dozens of delectable chocolates from local vendors, including chocolate cream pies, chocolate-dipped fruits, gourmet milk shakes, cakes, cupcakes, and dark chocolate."

This year, guests will experience even more chocolate decadence, along with the return of Smoked On 3rd BBQ Bistro & Catering's mouthwatering heavy hors d'oeuvres that will include farm-to-table beef, wild-caught shrimp, and an assortment of cheeses and vegetables. If that's not tempting enough, premium adult beverages including wine and bourbon pairings will be available as well.

"Your Chocolate Rendezvous ticket includes all that, plus a complimentary shuttle service from the Sauk parking lot to the red carpet," added Cortez. "Funds raised from the event will support the students and initiatives of the Sauk AG program. Wear your red and black finery for this signature "red tie" event!"

Sauk Valley Community College collaborates extensively with local agriculture professionals, and through investigations into potential impacts to the Dixon area, Sauk has built an AG program to meet diverse workforce needs throughout the Sauk Valley region. By attending Sauk's Chocolate Rendezvous, you'll be supporting your local AG students, your regional economy, and Sauk Valley Community College.
