Cherish’s Death by Chocolate will return for the second year by popular demand.
“We were asked by last year’s participants to have the event again this year,” Cherish Child Advocacy Center of Hamilton County Executive Director Wendy Gamble said. “There is much excitement about the event. It is just a laid back, fun event.”
Death by Chocolate is set for 7 p.m. Nov. 15 at the Indiana Design Center, 200 Range Line Rd., Carmel.
The event is one of Cherish’s two biggest fundraisers of the year, the other being a spring breakfast. Cherish’s mission is to prevent child abuse.
“At the breakfast we like to focus on what we do and what our team does,” Trauma Care Coordinator Kelly Reiff said. “It’s really heavy at the breakfast, but we want Death by Chocolate to be a light-hearted evening.”
Proceeds will support trauma care for children and families as well as support an expansion at the new location. Cherish recently moved to 15570 Stony Creek Way in Noblesville.
“We were needing to grow and we were out of room,” Reiff said. “We still need some things to furnish it. It’s a bigger space, so there’s a lot more cost to it. That’s an adjustment, being a small nonprofit.”
Reiff said Ten Days Pending, a band headed by Carmel Police Dept. Sgt. Phil Hobson, will perform.
The event will include a raffle, wine pull and cash bar from Urban Vines. A VIP area will be catered by Sahm’s.
General admission tickets are $30 and VIP tickets are $55. A pack of four general admission tickets is $100. For ticket or sponsorship opportunities, visit cherishcac.org/events/death-by-chocolate. There will be an auction for a six-day vacation for two with a choice of several different resorts.
