Eat chocolate, raise money?
That’s exactly what happened this past weekend when the Rotary Club of South West Queens hosted a chocolate fundraiser for the community-based Our Lady of Grace Ministry of Care and Service Food Pantry.
For the price of admission, attendees were able to indulge in treats such as M&M pancakes, chocolate pancakes, chocolate chip muffins, and chocolate cookies and brownies.
There was also a chocolate fountain with fresh fruit, pretzels and even marshmallows. Home-baked chocolate truffles were also available. To wash it all down – chocolate milk, of course. Chocolate-themed movies were also played on a big screen for the children to enjoy.
“This was a great idea! Job well done,” said Senator Joseph Addabbo, who brought his wife and two girls to the gooey fun.
