There are 2 ways to attend this event which will also include a SILENT AUCTION - buy TICKETS or CHOCOLATE
Chocolate made by Atlanta's own award winning Xocolatl small batch chocolate will be picked up at the event ONLY. If you wish to use the event as a time to simply pick up the chocolate without being obligated to attend the event, your chocolate bar or bunny counts as an entry ticket which you will not need to purchase separately in case you'd like to stay and enjoy the event! All proceeds from chocolates, tickets, and donations will be given to the Boys & Girls Club of Metro Atlanta : The Innovation & Expression Studio to continue cultivating youth development driven by arts, innovation, and expression.
Atlanta's own boy band M3 (pictured below) will provide entertainment for the event: "We are M3, Atlanta’s First Genre-Less Boy Band! We are 3 brothers who were raised in Music and have been singing and performing our entire lives. Our Dad, Milton (Egypt) McWilliams Sr., also our Manager/Produces, groomed and taught us everything we know about music. We can rock elementary school kids to college kids adapting the performance accordingly. We can sing to inspire the homeless and put on tuxedos to perform the “National Anthem” for the Prudent of the United States all on the same day. "
