Easter Seals Nevada Hosts Second Annual "Cheers to Chocolate" With Luxurious Wine and Chocolate Tasting on October 20

Phat Pack Entertains at Delectable Event at Tivoli Village This Fall; Tickets now on sale

Las Vegas – The valley’s tastiest fundraising event is back with the second annual “Cheers to Chocolate” to benefit Easter Seals Nevada on Saturday, October 20 from 7-9 p.m. at Tivoli Village.  Chocolate and wine lovers can savor more than 35 different wines provided by Total Wine & More and chocolate by Vosges Haut Chocolat, Godiva Town Square, Nothing Bundt Cake, Popcorn Girl, CupKates, Leone Café and other notable vendors around Las Vegas.

“We are thankful for all of the community support we’ve received to help make this year’s ‘Cheers to Chocolate’ possible,” said Brian Patchett, President and CEO of Easter Seals Nevada. “All funds raised at this event will go directly to our ‘Make the First Five Count’ initiative, helping us to better serve the children receiving services from Easter Seals.”

In addition to wine and chocolate samplings, guests can stroll Tivoli’s cobble stone streets while listening to the exquisite musical entertainment of the Phat Pack, a dynamic trio of cast members from Phantom The Las Vegas Spectacular. There will also be a lavish silent auction that will feature fine jewelry, artistic masterpieces, show tickets and more. 

“Cheers to Chocolate” will help fund Easter Seals Nevada’s “Make the First Five Count,” a program that works to identify early developmental delays in children under five years of age and strives to start vital therapies during the critical early years. Easter Seals Nevada is the largest community provider of Early Intervention services in the state. The organization recently expanded to northern Nevada, and now provides services to more than 7,000 individuals with disabilities.

Tickets are $35 and can be purchased at www.cheerstochocolate.com
