7th Annual Chocolate Challenge—Cancelled

Your health and wellbeing is our primary concern. We have made the difficult decision to cancel this years’ event as part of our multi-faceted response to the COVID-19 coronavirus crisis. We are considering looking at several options in rescheduling the event—more details to be published later. We will be reaching out to those who already purchased tickets and or have reservations. Thank you for your patience and support!

The 7th Annual Chocolate Challenge will be held March 14, 6–9pm at the Eldorado Hotel and Spa in downtown Santa Fe. This fundraising event draws about 400 guests to a chocolate dessert competition between talented local chefs. $55 of the $90 admission is tax deductible and includes hors d’oeuvres, live music by Los Tropicales, a silent auction, and most importantly, one of each dessert entry and a vote in the Peoples Choice Award!
