Come this Saturday, Feb. 22, the For the Love of Chocolate Foundation will transform Chicago’s Union League Club into a classy speakeasy, all for the benefit of awarding scholarships to students attending The French Pastry School.
Supporters of pastry and confectionery excellence will have opportunity to enjoy a 1920s style moveable feast and dessert dance party as they dress up in shiny spats and long lavalieres.
As expected, the Great Gateau Cake show will undoubtedly make a grand entrance, although numerous other activities throughout the night will keep everyone in full Charleston swing.
The event, which begins at 8:00 p.m. and ends at midnight, will occupy two party floors at the Union League Club. There will be live music, ritzy entertainment, dancing, a cake parade, speakeasy salons, and a moveable feast from dozens of Chicago's favorite chefs.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a For Love of Chocolate event without chocolate. There will be an unflappable lineup of desserts from alumni and friends of the French Pastry School.
Money raised from the event goes to the For the Love of Chocolate Foundation, which awards scholarships to students in the full-time programs taught by The French Pastry School at City Colleges of Chicago.
