A New Twist to the 4th Annual Chocolate Affair
This elegant evening will be held on May 3, 2012 and will include irresistible chocolate desserts, drinks, and entertainment. We are thrilled to welcome renowned vocalist/songwriter, Shannon McNally, with an unforgettable acoustic performance.
The Chocolate Affair adds such a sweet and unique twist to an enjoyable evening in Vicksburg. The many scrumptious chocolate desserts and assortment of drinks are being sponsored by Anchuca, Cedar Grove Mansion Inn & Restaurant, Just Desserts, The Liquor Store, Main Street Market, Roca, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and Walnut Hills. The SCHF has partnered with local businesses and if you present your Chocolate Affair ticket the night of the event at Anchuca, Cedar Grove Mansion Inn & Restaurant, Roca or Walnut Hills, they will grant 10% off your dinner purchase.
The auditorium will be transformed into a room of sophistication and charm by the local talents of Tina’s Flowers & Gifts LLC. This event is also sponsored in part by DiamondJacks Casino and Hotel.
The acoustic performance by Shannon McNally will be an unforgettable treat for all. Shannon McNally got her first guitar at the age of 12 and never looked back. McNally opened for Stevie Nicks and Ryan Adams, and was part of the 1999 Girl's Room tour with Tara MacLean, Kendall Payne, and Amy Correia. Combined with the classic rock she grew up listening to – The Allman Brothers, Dr. John and Hendrix – it’s the musical center of gravity she brought to her 2002 Capitol Records debut “Jukebox Sparrow,” gaining notice from Rolling Stone, The New York Times, Leno and Letterman. This decidedly rare approach for a woman drew the same accolades for indie-based “Geronimo”
Space is limited and an advanced ticket purchase is required. For more information or to purchase tickets, please call the SCHF office at 601-631-2997 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
