(Savannah, GA) Chef Matt Cohen, owner of The New South Café, is proud to participate in Savannah’s Annual Chocoholic Frolic on October 11th at the Savannah Civic Center. “This is a fun event and we enjoy contributing our time and food for such a good cause,” Chef Matt said. “It is an honor to support the research and education for breast cancer.”
Chocoholic Frolic is an event which samples sweet finger foods from some of Savannah’s most popular restaurants and dessert bars, benefiting the cause of breast cancer. All proceeds go to Liblines, a non-profit organization facilitating open communication between breast cancer fighters and their family and friends with targeted greeting cards. This year’s contributions will go toward providing services for people battling the disease as well as fund research and education. www.liblines.org.
