5th Annual Chocolate Benefit Spectacular @ Nasson Community Center

 Chocolate Benefit Spectacular!

Fifth annual chocolate tasting event to benefit the 

Sanford Backpack Program

When:  February 3, 2018

Time:  6:00 to 9:30 PM

Where:  Nasson Community Center; Springvale, ME

The Sanford Backpack Program, an initiative of Strategies for a Stronger Sanford, partners with the Sanford School District to prove children who are food insecure with backpacks filled with nutritionally dense food. We serve about 200 children (and their families) in grades K through 12 and send over 100,000 individual meals home with Sanford children.

To help sustain the program, we are currently planning our FIFTH annual Chocolate Benefit Spectacular, on Sat. Feb. 3, 2018. This fun community-wide event will include chocolatiers from local restaurants, bakeries, and community members who will provide samples of chocolate treats to over 250 attendees.

We are looking for event sponsors! The 2017 Chocolate Benefit was a huge success and raised almost $20,000 for our program. The Sanford Backpack Program needs your help to make this happen again!
