Q. How big is the box, what does it contain, and how much does is cost?

A. The box is 8"x8"x4" inches and includes a variety of chocolate desserts, including cupcakes, candies, and other chocolate treats. Not all boxes will contain the same items, but your sugar cravings will be thoroughly satisfied. Boxes are $23 each, with a portion of the money going to local hunger relief organizations.

Q. Once I order my box online, how do I pay for it, and how do I pick it up?

A. Place your order and pay oline and then come to St. Mark's on Saturday, Feb. 11, between 1 and 4 p.m. to pick up your box (or boxes).  

Q. Can I order a box in person that day?

A. Probably not -- last year we completely sold out a week before the event.

Q. What happens if I can't come pick up the box during the Chocolate Festival (Saturday, Feb. 11, 1-4 p.m.)? 

A. You must be able to pick up the box that day, although you can designate someone else to pick it up for you. Or, you can donate your box to a first reponder--volunteers will deliver the boxes to the Westford Fire Department after the festival. If you let us know ahead of time, you can also pick up your box after the 9 a.m. service on Sunday, Feb. 12, but because the desserts are freshly made, we can't store purchased boxes longer than 24 hours. 

Q. I have a nut allergy. Will there be nut-free options?

A. No, we can't guarantee our parishioners will be able to safely make nut-free desserts.

Q. What food pantries will benefit?

A. We will donate a portion of the proceeds to the Westford Food Pantry, Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry, and St. Paul's Soup Kitchen.

Q. What are the raffle prizes?

A. A full list is coming soon! Visit this page for an updated list of prizes.

Q. I don't want to buy a box of chocolate or raffle tickets. How can I just donate money?

A. Go here and look for the Chocolate Festival dropdown box: https://www.st-mark.org/give#
