The 2012 Champagne & Chocolate held in April as a fundraiser for the Titus Regional Medical Foundation raised more than $13,750. The proceeds will benefit the Foundation’s Endowment Fund. The 3rd Annual event was held this year at Tankersley Gardens – a Gold sponsor - and featured live entertainment by the Evergreen Strings Quartet, based in Marshall. Around 80 guests attended the “simply elegant” evening and enjoyed a variety of champagnes, hors d’ouerves and gourmet, handmade chocolates – the highlight of the evening - provided by Gold sponsor Sweet Shop USA. Also this year, guests were provided with a complimentary portrait taken by Rhonda Lee of Lee’s Photography. Platinum sponsors again this year were Guaranty Bond Bank, Pilgrim Bank and McKelvey Enterprises.
A special thank you to the Champagne & Chocolate executive committee: TRMF Board members Beverly Kelley, Amy Jones, Gary Elliott, Krisan Norris-Sears and Lonnie Smith. The C&C Decorating Committee did a beautiful job: Cindy Gaskin, Allison Barnhill and Lisa Armstrong, with help from Myrna Cashatt. Also, thanks to everyone who came out and supported the event and to the TRMC staff and volunteers who helped.
