Gnosis Chocolate to host Chocolate Gala on a Boat
(Lisa & I are trying to get to this! If both or one of us go we will take a 5:18 train from fairfield)

Gnosis Chocolate is hosting a fundraiser gala with 100% of profits from the event to be donated to the organic agricultural efforts of Big Tree Farms and The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation. The event will take place aboard The Lucille on a boat temporarily coined ?The Chocolate Boat,? on Friday, September 10th.

The Chocolate Boat departs at 8pm and will cruise down the East River, following the evening?s last rays of sunlight to the west, around the tip of Manhattan and on to the Statue of Liberty before returning to dock at 11pm. Copious amounts of raw chocolate, gourmet health food, and beverages will provide sustenance to the evening?s philanthropists as they dance to the rhythms of an 8 East African Drummers and Didgeridoo. On the lower deck, various local eco companies will provide organic skincare treatments, massages, and other healthful and lavish products and services. On the upper deck?s dance floor, guests will dance the night away with New York wrapped around them ? the city skyline coming to life as lights illuminate. Through this event, Gnosis hopes to raise awareness of an organic marketplace backed by high-integrity, conscious companies and the joy experienced by those contributing to it

Space is limited! Pre-sale of tickets is available online through 12am on September 10th at $45. If space permits, tickets will be sold on the dock for $65. Tickets include meal, drink, and unlimited raw chocolate. The Chocolate Boat boards from 7-8pm and returns at 11pm
