|The Women’s Center will host the 17th Annual NC State Chocolate Festival for Breast Cancer Research on Friday, September 20, 2019 from 5:30-7:00 p.m. in Talley Student Union’s State Ballroom. The festival is many things — a fundraiser, an educational event, a chocolate extravaganza, a silent auction and fun.
The Chocolate Festival raises thousands annually for both the Kay Yow Cancer Fund and the Women’s Center while providing educational resources about breast cancer free of charge for the campus community. Chocolate vendors from the local community donate products for the booths, and many individuals and campus organizations donate goods and services for the silent auction. Faculty, staff and visitors attend the festival, which coincides with NC State’s Parents and Families Weekend.
