11th Annual Death by Chocolate - Saturday, Feb. 25, 7 - 10 p.m.

Thank you!


This year’s fundraising event for STEM education was the most successful ever – due to all of our dedicated and generous sponsors, silent auction donors and hardworking vendors and volunteers.

Looking forward to next year. Watch for the 2018 event date, coming soon!
