The end-of-the-year holidays were, as always, filled with tasty treats, and in mid-February, heart-shaped candies will be everywhere. But what can you do about your sweet tooth in the meantime?
ClearWater Conservancy has the answer: Attend their annual For the Love of Art and Chocolate event, on Friday, January 27, from 7 to 9:30 p.m. at The Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel. Proceeds from the event will benefit the conservancy, which promotes the conservation and restoration of natural resources in central Pennsylvania through land conservation, water resource protection, and environmental outreach to the community.
The event, in its 13th year, will include music, art, and, last but not least, CHOCOLATE. Unlimited chocolate. And if last year’s dozens of chocolate donors – national names like Hershey and local places like the Sugar On Top cupcake shop, the Boalsburg Chocolate Company, and the Penn State Berkey Creamery – are any indication, this year’s event is sure to be a sweet treat for your taste buds.
For a ticket price of $30, you’ll get an impressive assortment of chocolate delicacies, the possibility of winning door prizes, and the opportunity to view and bid on nature-inspired artwork. For just $5 each, you can also purchase raffle tickets that will put you in the running to win prizes such as a print of an oil painting, by local artist Jennifer Kane, that depicts a 152-acre property that ClearWater acquired in Galbraith Gap. You could also win a weekend stay for two at the C. Barton McCann School of Art’s Hemlock Cottage, including free admission to a weekend workshop of the winner’s choice.
To purchase event tickets and/or raffle tickets in advance, call ClearWater Conservancy at (814) 237-0400. Tickets may also be purchased at the door, but advance ticket holders can walk right in.
