Friends of the Chickasha Public Library Fourth Annual Chocolate Celebration

The Friends of the Library is hosting the Fourth Annual Chocolate Celebration as a fundraiser for the Library.  Proceeds will support the Library’s special projects. The Chocolate Celebration will be held at the Epworth Church Life Center on Thursday, February 11th from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. and you are invited to participate.

How it works:

  • People come to the Chocolate Celebration and get six servings of chocolate desserts.
  • Fifteen civic organizations and businesses each provide 200 servings of homemade chocolate desserts – cake, cookies, brownies. Some sugar-free items would be welcome.
  • Friends of the Library sell $6 tickets for a serving of six different chocolate desserts.

Each person will be given a nice “to go” box for their treats — either eat the luscious array of chocolate delights oneself, or tie the box up with a red ribbon as a Valentine gift.
