In Autumn - after the harvests are in, the fields are tilled, the fruit is picked - the pace of life in France is distinctly slower and more relaxed. The evenings draw in, and local life enjoys their traditional customs and lifestyles of Paris in the Fall.

Experience Paris, France by joining us for a relaxing and splendorous evening with a traditional French atmosphere and gourmet French desserts! You will be greeted with a glass of sparkling wine, a wistful Crepe Cart, and a captivating Croquembouche. Chef Missy of Black Velvet Desserts will feature authentic French desserts plated and paired with French wine. Jackie Ketchel of A Wine Lady Speaks is joining us again to guide us through the art of wine pairing.

This event will be bringing awareness to the ever growing world of human sex trafficking. Black Velvet Desserts has a social mission to bring light to a dark place as well as to help change the culture that keeps the industry thriving. At the event, Missy will speak about the culture of human sex trafficking here in Ohio as well as throughout the world. Her goal is to bring awareness of the realness of the sex trade and how easy it is to slip into.

“Every person should be free!” - Join in the fight to end human slavery by purchasing a ticket! $5 of each ticket sale will be donated to Exodus Cry. (Find out more by visiting www.exoduscry.com)
