Chocolate Collage

Yes, there will be another chocolate and wine event in 2016. Your attendance will benefit many re-entry students at UCSC through the scholarships funded by the event.

Please read about last year's event in the Santa Cruz Sentinel.

UCSC Women's Club members and friends planned a chocolate lovers' event to remember for January 2015. We especially want to thank our sponsors, those who donated to the silent auction, and to the many volunteers.

We added a chocolate workshop, "Chocolate Alchemy 101," from 11 a.m. -1 p.m. at the Cocoanut Grove. See the workshop web page.

New this year was the Chocolate Festival Poster Contest.  View our 2015 poster created by Marguerite Kalhor.

Another new event was the Blind Chocolate Tasting for vendors who wished to enter their products into competition. The award winners are posted on the "Blind Chocolate Tasting" page.

Voted Chocoholic of the Year  was Georgia Jensen.
