Despite Mother Nature crashing the party with several inches of snow, the 2015 Peace, Love, and Chocolate fundraiser for breast cancer was a huge success. Today, you can enjoy the fun, festivities, partyscape, and chocolate vicariously. And vicarious chocolate doesn’t have any calories. PS – You can also use this partyscape as inspiration for a baby shower or any other pink party.
The ladies were greeted with pink and pink ribbon lanterns as they walked into the house. The fundraising station was set up with educational materials and the raffle prizes.
The two charities that we support are the Tigerlily Foundation and the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation. Online donations are still being accepted at the links below.
The Chocolate Room
Without a doubt, the highlight of the party is the chocolate room. Those who have attended in the past make a bee-line to the chocolate room to see the partyscape and enjoy the several hundred homemade truffles.
It’s a pink and chocolate wonderland! Our guests enjoyed all of the chocolates, and the next day, the leftovers were donated to the local fire station. Last year, we had around 75 ladies; this year was closer to around 40, which was amazing considering the snow storm we had that day!
The flowers were donated and dispersed throughout the fundraiser. They were then donated to the local hospital the day after.
I found these pink curtains at Target. The normal curtains took a break and were temporarily replaced with these to give the room a fun, festive, and pink vibe.
Peace, Love, and Chocolate 2015 Results
After several hundred truffles, several inches of snow, and the generous donations in person and online, we raised over $3,000 for these amazing breast cancer organizations!
Love, hugs, and many thanks to all for a successful day!
