    The Ghirardelli Chocolate Festival is an annual family-friendly event featuring prominent local chefs creating chocolate inventions during cooking demonstrations, live musical entertainment, children's activities, and the popular ice cream sundae eating contest. Over thirty vendor booths will feature local restaurants, bakeries, and chocolate companies providing chocolate and dessert samples during the festival.

    Volunteers will work at vendor booths and hand out chocolate samples to festival attendees. Volunteers will receive a complimentary ticket to redeem for free chocolate samples during their break.

    All proceeds from the festival will be donated to Project Open Hand, a nonprofit organization providing food and compassion to people living with HIV/AIDS, homebound critically ill people, as well as seniors in San Francisco. For more information, visit www.openhand.org
