Hospice to host Valentine’s Day fundraiser

Treat yourself and your Valentine to an evening of indulgence that won’t leave you feeling guilty.

Chocolates will be served and jazz music will be played, but all proceeds from this event will benefit Hospice of Southern West Virginia.

“Chocolate Jazz: A Night of Indulgence” will take place Feb. 11 at 7 p.m. at the John W. Eye Conference Center at Mountain State University. Single tickets are $35 and couple tickets are $60.

“It’s Valentine’s weekend. We thought it would be something out of the ordinary to do and for a great cause,” Volunteer Coordinator Becky Lilly said.

“Hospice is a non-profit organization and we do not turn anybody away if they cannot pay.

Sometimes they may have Medicare or Medicaid, but if it doesn’t cover it all, we cover expenses, so we do depend a lot on donors to help us.”

Musical guests Lady D and David Wells will perform at Chocolate Jazz.

Throughout the evening, servers will deliver trays of chocolate samples from local businesses. Everything from chocolate cupcakes to chocolate-covered bacon will be available for tasting.

A chocolate fountain will also be set up, thanks to MSU culinary students.

“It’s a night to relax, mingle, listen to music and indulge yourself in chocolate.”

For tickets, call 304-255-6404.
