Our online chocolate box auction, where famous chefs create delicious chocolate boxes which are auctioned off in support of Galvin’s Chance is back for 2017!
The 2017 auction will be the third year of this exciting fundraising campaign and is sponsored by Martell. The auction will go live on January 27th, and you will be able to bid for your favourite chocolate boxes and send them to your Valentine’s, or keep them for yourself! Meanwhile, keep an eye on the site and on Twitter to see the participating chefs as they sign up.
Over the years we have had just under 100 chefs take part and help us raise £15,000 for the programme. That money has helped put 6 young people on to Galvin’s Chance, the into work programme initiated by Chris Galvin, Chef Patron Galvin Restaurants and Fred Sirieix, General Manager at Galvin at Windows restaurant in 2009.
This year we want to raise even more funds and help make a real change to young people lives. To help us do this we will also be hosting an online raffle. For this raffle, four of our chefs will be making an extra box and there will also be an exclusive box designed by Fred Sirieix. It will cost £5 to take part in the raffle and give you u a chance of winning one of the 5 boxes! For more information on the raffle please click here.
Chris and Fred said: “Galvin’s Chance is amazing because it is about the industry giving a chance to young people. We believe success is contextual and so if you give people guidance, opportunities and support, they will succeed and that is why we do it.”
