It’s not often that those of us in the valley get the chance for a big night out where our hard-earned dinero actually goes towards a good cause. But the big hearts and creative minds over at Chamonix/Capbreton-based Choclo Project are providing the best chance ever to not only power down an exotic meal but to shore up the ol’ art collection while helping others live better lives as well.
On January 23rd, Choclo is hosting a fundraiser to benefit their partner orphanage in Peru. All the money raised from the formal dinner and art auction will go to Nuevo Futuro, a private, non-profit organization that has found homes for over 400 abandoned children and adolescents.
The big night out will feature melt-in-your-mouth, lip-smacking Peruvian wine and vittles served up at the stylish and cozy Hotel Eden. Live music and original artwork will round out what will definitely be a unique night in Chamonix.
Tickets to the event are selling out fast so get yo bad self over to http://www.chocloproject.com/pages/chamonix_fundraiser/en ASAP and make your reservations.
