Seeking sponsors for 2010 United Way Chocolate, Wine and All That Jazz

If you’ve been reading the blog since last summer, you’ll know that I am a chairperson for the United Way of Greater St. Louis’ Chocolate, Wine & All That Jazz. We are in full swing (pun intended) and getting ready for this year’s event.

Chocolate, Wine & All That Jazz is exactly what you would think it is – yummy dessert, tasty wines and jazz music – all wrapped up into one fun night.

This year’s Chocolate, Wine & All That Jazz is Saturday, September 11 at the Foundry Art Centre in St. Charles. The evening will include a performance by the internationally-renowned jazz singer Denise Thimes and libations from local chocolatiers and wineries.

Last year, more than 200 guests enjoyed chocolate, wine and jazz under the stars, while raising over $10,000 for the United Way. 100% of the money we raised went back to the community the form of programs like job training and food for families and crisis.

I am seeking personal and corporate sponsorships to subsidize the event costs so that all of the money we raise can go directly back to the United Way.
