Chocolate Fest: It's Chocolate... For a Cause


Did someone mention chocolate? For those who haven't heard my life motto, at least when it comes to candy, it's actually very simple: If it isn't Chocolate, it isn't Candy. And therefore not really worth my time.

Keep your Skittles and Red Vines and SweeTarts and Payday salted nut bars, I just want chocolate. And preferably dark chocolate. (Ok, I wasn't truthful about Paydays -- they are actually quite yummy).

But there is one kind of chocolate that's head and shoulders above the rest, and that's chocolate that supports a good cause. Because we've decided to tell ourselves that those calories don't count. Or maybe they do, but we're not counting. Either way, it's the best excuse to indulge. This weekend's Chocolate Fest is just the place to do it.

Chocolate Fest 2018 is happening this Saturday, April 7th at Cordova Mall, and it's a benefit event for Gulf Coast Kids' House -- a non-profit that fights child abuse in Pensacola and Escambia County. They are doing important work in our Gulf Coast communities, and it's an organization that's deserving of our support. And what a great way to help.

There are two kinds of tickets for Chocolate Fest, VIP and General Admission. The main difference is that an extra $5 will get you an extra hour of access to all that delicious chocolate. (Did we mention that calories don't count?)

  • $15 -- General Admission (1PM-3PM)
  • $20 -- VIP (Get in early, starting at 12Noon)

Our iHeartMedia Gulf Coast stations are proud to be part of Chocolate Fest 2018. And I'll tell you, it has been really easy finding staff members to volunteer for duty on Saturday. It's a hard job, but somebody's gotta do it, right?

We hope to see you there.
