RSVP set for the 22nd Chocolate Classics
RSVP presents the 22nd Annual Chocolate Classics, the main annual fund-raiser for the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) of Lincoln County. The event is set for Saturday, January, 26, 2013 starting at 7:00 p.m., at the Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport, Oregon.
Chefs from the Pacific Northwest will be entering their favorite sweet or savory chocolate recipes and will be judged in several categories. Dave Dahl, of Dave’s Killer Bread, will be leading the esteemed judging panel. Sandra Roumagoux, Mayor of Newport, will be emcee for the night!
For $30 per person or $50 per couple, in advance, attendees get to sample all the chocolate they can eat along milk and coffee plus a no host bar provided by Fin’s Coffee. There will also be a silent auction and live entertainment. Attendees have a chance to participate in a Best Dressed or Celebrity Look-Alike Contest.
Several silent auction items will be up for bid, including gift baskets from Dave’s Killer Bread and stays in hotels throughout the country. “I’m so impressed by the generosity of local business owners,” said Tamara Rosser, RSVP Director. She added, “I know I’ll have to bid on a few items myself!”
RSVP helps those age 55 and over “Re-Invent their Retirement” through service to their community and neighbors. RSVP’s focus is seniors helping seniors. All proceeds from the event will go towards RSVP’s Friendly Visitor Program. The program helps homebound seniors stay connected to their community while remaining living independently in their own home. Friendly Visitors provide a meaningful social connection by socializing, playing board games, listening to music, or going shopping with their Friendly Visitor client. The program’s oldest client remains living independently in her own home at the age of 99!
Tickets are available at the door or may be pre-purchased at Oceanview Senior Living, Oregon Coast Aquarium, Newport Bay Candle Company, SPCH Gift Shop, TLC Federal Credit Union, and Washington Federal (Waldport Branch).
