GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (WOOD) - A chill is in the air this winter, but there is also lots of love, wine and chocolate swirling around to keep us warm! An event called just that - Love, Wine and Chocolate - is taking place on February 9 from 6-9pm. In the past, this event has benefited organizations such as Big Brothers, Big Sisters of the Lakeshore and this year the proceeds will benefit the Center for Women in Transition. There will have a small silent auction with a lot of the items for couples since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. You can experience everything from an overnight hotel stay to VIP wine tastings. There will also be some live entertainment by the duo Jack Leaver and David Stanton . Some of the wine and chocolate vendors offering samples include:
Chocolates by Grimaldi
Dove Chocolate Discoveries
Ronnie Selby – Mykols
East Village Wine Shoppe
Lemon Creek Winery
Grand Haven Tasting Room
If you’d like to come out and see these vendors plus many more, tickets are $30 in advance and can be purchased from the front desk of the Spring Lake Holiday Inn. Tickets are $35 at the door the night of the event.
