Chocolate Friend-zy Fundraiser Today
Join the Friends of the Library this Sunday, November 17 for an afternoon of chocolate sampling from Birnn Chocolates of Highland Park, makers of award winning treats for over 87 years!
The East Brunswick Friends of the Library are honored to invite you to the Chocolate Friend-zy, an afternoon of confections discussion and samplings. Our special guest is John Cunnell, one of the founders of Birnn Chocolates.
His wife, Andrea, is the great-grand-daughter of Charles Henry Birnn, who started Birnn Chocolates in 1932. Located at the corner of Cleveland Avenue and Madison Avenue in Highland Park, Birnn Chocolates is an award-winning confectioner, making traditional chocolate treats for over 87 years.
The New Jersey-based company specializes in making high-end confections out of natural ingredients. Their retail store is located in the same building as their factory. Information about the company's history can be found online at www.birnnchocolates.com
Cunnell is giving a presentation about the company's history and offering samples of their products. After the discussion, he will answer questions about chocolate, candy and desserts. Guests will be able to enjoy a reception of over 25 homemade desserts to sample provided by the Friends of the Library. Birnn Chocolates will also have confectionery treats available for purchase.
Admission to the event is $10, and all proceeds benefit the East Brunswick Public Library. Tickets are available at the library's circulation desk, online or at the event
