How does it work? Each participant will bring two identical chocolate desserts. One dessert will be tasted by patrons and 

judges, the other will be part of an auction for the highest bidder to take home. Rules: Each dessert must contain at least one type of chocolate (milk, white or dark). The desserts will be judged by a panel of “chocolate experts”, submit entries 10:30-12:00. Prizes will be given to the winners chosen by the judges in each category . The public in attendance will also get to vote on their favorite and the overall winners will receive a prize.

 Festivities: Entertainment will perform during the public tasting. Make sure to be there for the live auction of the desserts at 1:30 pm. You can also participate in our silent auction for fun gift baskets and other great items. Donations will be accepted at the door. All proceeds from this event will benefit people with disabilities receiving services through Salmon River Industries.

 Hope to see you there! For more information: Contact: Salmon River Industries
