BFMC Chocolate Fantasy 2016

Adapted from a Baystate Franklin Medical Center (BFMC) press release:

It’s red and white, with love all over! Delectable chocolate treats, love songs, beautiful raffle baskets, and Valentine-related crafts will all be found at Chocolate Fantasy 2016. BFMC volunteers and members of the Baystate Franklin Auxiliary (BFA) will hold their annual Chocolate Fantasy fundraiser on Friday, February 12th, from 9:30AM to 3:30PM, in the hospital’s main conference rooms.  This year's proceeds will support the hospital’s Cardiopulmonary Department and Mental Health Unit.

In addition to chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate, you'll be able to enjoy a mini-concert of love songs, presented by BFMC’s women’s a cappella chorus Clinical Notes, at 12:15PM in the main lobby.  Chocolate Fantasy is also a great time to buy Valentine’s Day gifts for loved ones or to simply treat yourself.  Chocolate Fantasy Committee Chair Sydney Ramey commented, “Many local organizations and BFMC staff and volunteers have graciously and generously donated chocolate items; from chocolate chip cookies, to chocolate covered apples, to truffles and fudge, and much more. We always invite contributors to ‘think creatively’ as they consider what to send in for the sale.”

Another highlight of this year’s event will be the raffling off of an original watercolor by John Tomasetti of Shutesbury, a member of the Old Deerfield Painting Group.  The painting is currently on display in the BFA Gift Shop window and tickets can be purchased there for $2 each, 3/$5, or $10 for a baker’s dozen.

For more information on the Chocolate Fantasy, or to donate chocolate goodies or raffle items, email BFMC Volunteer Services Manger Becky George or call her at (413) 773-2318.
