I saw an ad for this in City Pulse so I went looking for information. The following is from the MSU Museum website.
MSU Museum Chocolate Party Benefit
Sunday, February 22, 2009
1:30pm – 3:30pm
Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center
South Harrison Road, East Lansing, MI
The Michigan State University Museum Chocolate Party Benefit is set for Sunday, Feb. 22, 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. in the Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center, Harrison Road and Michigan Avenue, East Lansing. The event features samples to savor from the area’s finest “chocolatiers.” In this popular community event, chocolate lovers indulge for a great cause — all to benefit the care and preservation of the MSU Museum’s collections.
Chefs, caterers and all-around chocolate connoisseurs compete to make extravagant masterpieces using the key ingredient, chocolate. The event is unique in that it’s one of the few professional culinary industry competitions open to the general public. Meanwhile, the MSU Museum will also mount an exhibit showing a sampling of its diverse holdings, which number nearly 1 million objects, artifacts and specimens.
Tickets are $30 for the general public and a special “Premier Chocolatier” ticket for $75 offers an advance preview of the elaborate Chocolate Party creations and a year-long MSU Museum membership.
