Eat chocolate for a good cause

Barlovento Logo

Raise money for a good cause and get gobs of good chocolate in return.

Bid on the Barlovento Chocolates package during the 28th Annual KPFA Grateful Dead Marathon, Feb. 8, 2014, and you could win a private truffle making session with Peter Brydon of Barlovento, plus 100 truffles and more.

KPFA is the oldest listener-supported radio station in the country. Based in Berkeley, it was started in 1949. And like our beloved artisan chocolatiers, their programming is mostly “local, original and eclectic.”

One of their regular fundraising events is the Grateful Dead Marathon. During the 16-hour marathon that starts at 9 am and includes some live music, will be the auction that includes the Barlovento package.

Create your own truffle stash

The winning bidder can work with Peter and his team to develop their own personal flavor of truffle. The plan is to spend an evening or two in the kitchen, going through flavors and learning how truffles are made, then deciding on a special flavor of chocolate truffle.

According to KPFA, “The winner will wind up with at least a hundred truffles (they don’t have to take ‘em all at once). The level of involvement is up to the winner. They can design the truffle or participate fully in the process. Plus the winner receives a cool designer Barlovento Chocolates T-shirt!”

Bidding starts at $500.00.

KPFA broadcasts on 94.1 FM and KPFB 89.3 FM, Berkeley, and KFCF 88.1 FM, Fresno, California. Or you can listen online.
