“Spring Into Auction!” is the theme of this year’s Sweet Charity event, to be held on March 24.

Ten of Chester County’s finest dessert chefs are bring their specialties to the event, which this year will be held at William H. Bunch Auctions & Appraisals on Route 202.  

Over 350 guests are expected to attend this highly competitive dessert contest. VIP guests and corporate sponsors are invited to the preview reception beginning at 4:30 p.m., highlighted by William Bunch’s discussion of valuing antiques and collectibles. The dessert contest begins at 5:30 p.m.  Between appetizers and wines, guests will sample desserts and decide the popular vote winner.  Professional judging then takes place to decide the award winners.

Sweet Charity also features Sweet Victory, pairing Victory Brewing beers with desserts. Sweet Victory is hosted by ChesCo Community Imprints, a network of Chester County’s emerging philanthropists and community volunteers, ages 30 to 45.  They will also award a grant to a charity of their choice at the event.

This year’s lineup of entrants includes: Brandywine Prime, Cakes and Candies by Maryellen, Carlino’s Specialty Foods and Catering, Cupcakes Gourmet, Delightful Desserts & Culinary Creations, The Desmond Hotel, the General Warren Inne and others.

Sweet Charity benefits the Chester County Community Foundation, which grows legacy philanthropy throughout the region. The foundation helps families and businesses become involved in charitable giving for the long run, by encouraging legacy gifts and increasing awareness of the needs and issues facing Chester County. 

Tickets begin at $125. For more information, call 610-696-8211 or visit www.chescocf.org.
