Laura Added to Judging Panel for 2015 Chicago
AIDS Foundation World of Chocolate Fundraiser
CHICAGO, IL – After attending the 2014 World of Chocolate fundraiser, professional speaker and emcee Laura Schwartz will be joining the AIDS Foundation of Chicago’s 2015 event as a chocolatier contest judge. World of Chocolate is the Windy City’s commemorative World AIDS day event held at the beautiful Union Station, and will open its doors Thursday, December 3 from 6 to 9:00PM.
Attendees are encouraged to get “hotsy-totsy” and party like Gatsby for an evening of chocolate galore! Some of the region’s most prominent chocolatiers will be whipping up their most decadent creations, flanked by all the glitz and glamor of the evening’s festivities. Ticket purchases and donations will go towards free HIV tests, safer-sex kits, health insurance advisory services for HIV-positive individuals, and so much more.
“It is a treat to be a part of the Chicago AIDS Foundation’s biggest fundraiser of the year, after seeing its significant community impact in 2014,” Laura Schwartz comments. “In addition to bumping elbows with some of the best chocolatiers in the city, it is humbling to be associated with an organization that excels beyond others and actively saves lives each day with their work!”
