Event a sweet success

On Friday night, May 4th, Heart To Heart Pregnancy Resource Center hosted its annual Chocolate For Life. This year’s event was well-attended and chocolate desserts of all kinds filled the tables!

During each year’s event, Heart To Heart also hosts the annual “Best Chocolate Dessert in Eagle River/ Chugiak” Contest. This year, nine chocolate desserts were entered into the competition, ranging from candy to cheesecake. The following fantastic chocolate dessert makers are the winners of the contest. Third place was a three-way tie between Joann Webster with her Chocolate Cake, Andrea Tavenner with Chocolate Cake Truffles and Dede Hinton with Chocolate Strawberries. The second place winner was Kastle Sorensen with her ‘Death By Chocolate’ Cupcakes. First place went to Erin Kennedy for her Chocolate Peanut Butter Frozen Cheesecake. All winners received a gift certificate to one of three different local restaurants. Many thanks to our contest judges: Representative Anna Fairclough; Cozy Carpets owner, Melissa Hickey; Debbie Schreiber from Newborns In Need; and Matt Johnson, Director of Alaska Right to Life.

This year Heart To Heart introduced two awards to recognize those individuals or businesses whose support for Heart To Heart has had a significant impact on the Center. The Life Of The Center Award went to Greg Gillquist for his continued support of the day to day operations of the Center. The Heart Of The Center Award went to Kit Holmstrom for her efforts that truly exemplify the Center’s mission.

Our appreciation goes to the hundreds of people who attended and to those whose support for the Center is so valuable to us. We’re already looking forward to next year!
