Middlesex, VT – Nutty Steph’s, the Vermont artisan chocolatier, continues to celebrate independence and individuality this International Women’s Day at a celebration in their Middlesex shop Friday March 8th from 6:30 – 8:30 pm. This event, in the style of their legendary Bacon Thursdays, is free and open to the public and includes free hors d'oeuvres, performances by comedians, music, and a repeat of the renowned re-birthing ritual first seen at the 3rd Annual Women’s March on Montpelier in January.
This community celebration is the next in a year-long campaign by Nutty Steph’s on their way to raise $100,000 for Planned Parenthood of Northern New England (PPNNE), culminating at a Twenties Ball on New Year’s Eve at the ECHO Leahy Center for Lake Champlain in Burlington.
“At Planned Parenthood, we believe that everyone should have access to high-quality and compassionate sexual and reproductive health care, no matter what,” said Meagan Gallagher President and CEO of PPNNE, “We are so grateful to Nutty Steph’s for their commitment to our organization and patients, and their incredibly generous support of this vital work.”
Nutty Steph’s has pledged to raise the funds for organization by donating $1 with each sale of a special run of chocolate vulva boxes. With the support of local businesses and individuals, the first 500 chocolates were donated to attendees of the Women’s March.
“We’re well on our way to meeting the $100,000 goal, and are happy to be celebrating the first 5,000 sold”, said Martina Anderson of Nutty Steph’s, “we’ve shipped chocolates, with love, all over the country!”
Vermonters and chocolate lovers everywhere can help fund PPNNE’s essential work empowering individuals to make independent, informed decisions about their reproductive health by purchasing the handmade chocolates online at nuttystephs.com, at Nutty Steph’s Middlesex location, and at select local retailers.
Jaquelyn Rieke, founder of Nutty Steph’s, said “We are crafting these beautiful chocolates, and dedicating the resources of our business to women’s health and justice, as an invitation to our community for dialogue, openness, tolerance and diversity. Please join us this Friday to keep the conversation going.”
