For Valentine’s Day, nothing says loving like something from the wine cellar … especially when paired with chocolate.
And it’s for a good cause.
The Taste of Wine and Chocolate benefits Healing the Children, a nonprofit that donates medical care to children worldwide.
The Valentine’s Day event runs from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday at SoJen Cellars, 2818 Hewitt Ave.
Theo’s Chocolate will provide the chocolate for the pairings and Kathy Little and Joyce Bechtel will cater hors d’oeuvres.
The event will feature jazz with Leah Stilwell and a silent auction of Valentine gifts.
A cooler filled with 24 bottles of wine will be raffled.
Tickets are $30.
