The Women and Gender Resource Center will host the fifth annual Chocolate Festival on Friday, Sept. 25 from 3:00-5:00 p.m. in the Shelby Hall Rotunda.

The event is open to the public and tickets may be purchased for $8 at the WGRC before the event and at the door.

The purpose of the event is to raise funds and awareness for a variety of women’s health issues.

The funds raised help to support services and programs that the WGRC provides to victims of sexual assault, dating/domestic violence and stalking, said Paige Miller, coordinator of Campus Violence Programs for the WGRC.

“This event is important because it provides information to the community about a wide range of women’s health issues including information about health screening and prevention,” Miller said. “Secondly, the funds raised support the WGRC programs and services which allows our center to offer free and confidential counseling to victims of interpersonal violence, as well as leadership programs on campus and in the community.”

With the purchase of one ticket, each participant will be allowed to visit five tables to receive five small desserts as well as information about women’s health issues such as breast cancer, ovarian cancer and domestic violence.
