Clarksville’s Customs House Museum to hold 5th Annual Champagne and Chocolate Fundraiser

Clarksville's Customs House Museum and Cultural CenterClarksville, TN – On Thursday, January 30th, Champagne and Chocolate is back for its fifth installment to benefit the Customs House Museum. Doors open at 5:30pm at the Museum.

Live jazz music will be performed by the Henry Rives Trio. Don’t miss this signature event of the winter season!

5th Annual Champagne and Chocolate Fundraiser for Clarksville's Customs House Museum.

Guests can expect to enjoy a variety of tasty delicacies and bid in the evening’s silent auction, where they will find a select group of regional art, spa packages, gift certificates, and jewelry.

All champagne has been donated by Bill’s Package Store.

The still-growing list of participating restaurants and caterers include The Alley, Canyon Road Steakhouse, Catering Corner, Chopping Block, Chick-fil-A on Wilma Rudolph Boulevard, The Gilroy, Miss Lucille’s, Publix, Relish, Sweet Memories, and Trufflecious.

Champagne and Chocolate is organized by the Museum Guild, a group of all-female volunteers. Guild members DeeAnn Colburn and Stacy Streetman are chairing the event, aiming to make it a fun option as a girls’ night out or date night.

“Champagne and Chocolate is a must attend signature event,” says DeeAnn Colburn. “The night will be filled with a whimsy of class and decadence while you sample chocolate creations and enjoy a glass of champagne, wine or martini.”

Tickets are $50.00 per person. To purchase tickets, contact Linda Maki at 931.648.5780.

Numbers are limited. Funds generated from Champagne and Chocolate go towards exhibits and educational programming at the museum.
