This evening of benevolence and indulgence began with wine, beer and delectable chocolate tasting from local companies who presented their finest desserts and beverages for complimentary tasting. While savoring, attendees had the opportunity to bid on a wide array of exquisite donations for the silent auction. After the tasting reception, the philanthropy continued with a fabulous prime rib dinner served to enjoy during the entertaining live auction. Most importantly, the evening provided enduring financial support for the youth of the Paradise Ridge.
Proceeds raised from this annual benefit provide support for youth programs that offer educational, enrichment, recreational and leadership opportunities within the community. Over the last nine years, the Youth on the Ridge Community Foundation has distributed over $200,000 to 45 nonprofit organizations. In 2018, the Paradise Ridge encountered countless damages and a multitude of devastation from the most destructive wildfire in California history known as the Camp Fire. All of the promotional Chocolate Fest banners and signage from previous years were lost in the Camp Fire. Due to the improvement of technology over the last 13 years, RMC was delighted for the opportunity to reprint and donate all new upgraded Chocolate Fest signage with the highest quality printing and materials.
As homes, schools and youth programs are rebuilt, sponsors like RMC have come together to lend a helping hand to the Paradise Ridge on their journey to rebuild the community together for a promising future.
Join us for another chocolate celebration at the upcoming Paradise Chocolate Fest event on Saturday June 1st, 2019 from 9:00AM – 5:00PM at the Gold Country Casino Resort in Oroville.
