St. Mark’s Chocolate Festival indulges decadence for a good cause!
Annual signature outreach event benefits local food pantries.
This well-known local event returns for its 21st year on Saturday, Feb. 9. from 2-5 p.m. in Williams Hall, St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, 75 Cold Spring Road, Westford. Local restaurants and church members will show off their best chocolate creations. For the entry fee, guests can sample as much as their stomachs can handle. They can also vote for their favorites to help bestow bragging rights.
“We are looking forward to another fun event. St. Mark’s has been known for this event for so long, and it is such a fun and satisfying way to raise money for the community,” said Festival Co-Chair Linda Larson.
Adding to the excitement are live music, a children’s craft area, raffle items donated by local businesses, and - new this year - a silent auction. Raffle tickets can be purchased at the event, from the church secretary, or from any
St. Mark’s parishioner leading up to the big day. Half the proceeds will benefit the Westford and Lowell food pantries.
Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for seniors & children ages six and up. Children 5 and under are free. Purchase tickets at the door.
