Greetings from the Collins Center! We’re excited to invite you to partner with us by hosting a stop along the route of the Chocolate Walk, held on April 5th in conjunction with First Fridays Downtown. Thanks to the support of downtown businesses, sponsors, and chocolate donors, last year’s walk raised $11,000 to support survivors of sexual violence.


Between 4 - 8 pm on April 5th, ticket holders visit downtown businesses where they collect a variety of chocolate-based tasty treats made and donated by local supporters. 


We need a minimum of 20 downtown business owners to host stops for this year’s walk. Each site includes a table (staffed by our volunteers) for serving the chocolate. We’d be thrilled if you would consider donating both table space and 500 bite-size chocolate treats of your choice. 

As an EVENT HOST, your business will receive:

  • Increased foot traffic, with up to 500 ticket holders visiting throughout the evening

  • A window cling advertising the event and showing your support of the Collins Center

  • Inclusion in event publicity:

    • Public thank you on Facebook and Collins Center’s website

    • Name listed on Chocolate Walk map given to all participants

We appreciate your support and look forward to working together to support victims, survivors, and their family members. It’s people like you who truly make the world a sweeter place!

Please complete the form below by Friday, February 15th to confirm your commitment.
