Event Description

Kristy Leissle, Dr. Chocolate! Meet one of the only people in the world to receive a PhD studying chocolate!


ALL PROCEEDS will go to Sivananda Center, a rehabilitation center for destitute adults and children with life threatening diseases.
The Center was started by my grandmother in Hyderabad, India, more than 50 years ago, to restore health, hope and dignity to people affected by Leprosy. Since then the center & hospital have grown into a leading organization for those children and adults with other life threatening diseases such as Tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS. About 8 years ago, we started a nonprofit (501c3) organization in the US to further this cause.

$40/person (+ $1.46 service fee) includes...
- Dr. Chocolate, Kristy Leissle, will talk about her experiences in West Africa learning about the cocoa-chocolate trade.
- Taste a variety of spicy chocolate - Sponsors include: Roni-Sue's Chocolate, Amano Chocolate, Jacques Torres, Green & Black's, Sweet Riot & more.
- Sample more than 10 red & white wines
- Riedel Crystal stem glass, from which to taste and take home at the end of the evening
-Snacks, from a local Indian restaurant

As this is a fundraiser, we will also have a few items on silent auction at the event, 100% of the proceeds going towards Sivananda Center.
Items such as... Mini Fondue set & chocolate and Prints featuring the Indian deity, Ganesh, donated by photographer Shana Dressler. Discovering
