Night of Chocolate presented by:

Join us for a night of old Hollywood glamour that you won’t forget! Over the past 10 years, Night of Chocolate has become the premier celebration of chocolate throughout Ohio, attracting nearly 1,000 guests every year. This year’s Hollywood-themed gala is sure to please! Walk the red carpet Friday, September 22, at Hollywood Casino Columbus. Our guests will enjoy signature spirits, select wines, and one-of-a-kind cuisine. The highlight will be exquisite chocolate delicacies from Hollywood Casino Columbus, Giant Eagle and more than 20 other local, regional, national and international chocolatiers.

Night of Chocolate includes fabulous silent and live auctions with unique packages, dream vacations, extraordinary experiences and more! All proceeds from Night of Chocolate help provide support, educational programs, information and resources to thousands of central Ohio families whose lives have been affected by a cancer diagnosis. Because of your generosity, all programs are offered at no cost to participants, helping to lessen the financial burden often associated with a cancer diagnosis.
