'Confections In Chocolate' to show off local chefs' handiwork

Here's one for chocolate lovers who also like to support worthwhile charities: the 29th annual "Confections In Chocolate" fundraiser for the Epilepsy Foundation of Northeastern New York.

The event is scheduled for 5:30 to 11 p.m. Saturday, Marech 11, at the Glen Sanders Mansion. This year’s theme is “A Gallery of Hope.”

The big draw is the array of chocolate desserts donated by local chefs and pastry chefs who compete for the "Best Themed Dessert" title. The lineup so far includes O'Malley's Oven, Mazzone Hospitality, Farmer Boy Diner, Edible Arrangements, The Raindancer, Blue Ribbon Diner, Albany Marriott, Hannaford of Guilderland, ShopRite of Niskayuna, Saratoga National,  and Bella Napoli Bakery.

Tickets for the black-tie-optional gala event are available online at a variety of price points depending on level of involvement, or by calling (518) 456-7501.

The Glen Sanders Mansion is located at 1 Glen Avenue in Scotia, on the opposite bank of the Mohawk River from Schenectady County Community College.
