NEW ORLEANS — Be a part of the fight against breast cancer. Join Krewe de Pink for their second annual Death by Chocolate – NOT Breast Cancer fundraiser. “Breast Cancer is the leading cause of cancer in women and a disease that has touched someone we know – yet how to get involved in the fight can be difficult,” says Greg Cantrell, president. That is why Krewe de Pink created another fun way for people to support Breast Cancer Research.
The event, Death by Chocolate – NOT Breast Cancer, is a chocolate tasting with champagne which will be held Saturday, July 10, from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. at the Schoen Mansion, 3827 Canal St., New Orleans. This year’s event will be dedicated in memory of Norma Jane Sabaton, one of the 2020 Sweet Six Survivors. Tickets are limited and start at $45 per person in advance and $60 at the door. They can be purchased online at www.krewedepink.org.
Krewe de Pink is working in partnership with Delgado Community College’s Culinary and Pastry Arts Program. The students will be creating the tasty chocolate bites from chocolate donated by Callebaut Chocolate culminating in a live competition among the students. Each student will be judged on their chocolate-inspired dishes – both sweet and savory with both 1st and 2nd place prizes will be awarded for each category. Guests will participate in the judging and will also receive a goody bag, compliments of Delgado and Callebaut. Music will be provided by Delgado’s Music Department. Hillery Moise, Event Chair loves this event because “the money stays local and supports students, giving them the opportunity to give back to the community while strengthening their skills by applying them to the real world. A Win-Win-Win.”
Death by Chocolate Not Breast Cancer, like its sister fundraisers, the Pink Bra Run and Krewe de Pink Prom directly support Breast Cancer research at the Tulane Cancer Center by earmarking the money for non-grant supported research supplies. All monies donated stay here in New Orleans to support our local economy. Last year they raised over $25,000 and a total of $125,000 has been raised.
Death by Chocolate – NOT Breast Cancer is made possible by the generosity of Jacob Schoen & Son, Delgado Community College’s Culinary and Pastry Arts Program, Callebaut Chocolate, and Krewe de Pink.
