EMVI Chocolate Provides Sweet Support to Nigra Arts Center  

The Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts is grateful to EMVI Chocolate for its ongoing support, which happens to be exceptionally sweet.  

The Broadalbin business, owned by Irina and Victor Gelman, recently donated a giant chocolate bunny that was raffled off at the Nigra Arts Center’s Easter Bunny Family Fun Day on April 15th.  Also donated?  Hundreds of chocolates that were sold to visitors - with proceeds benefitting the center.  The generosity didn’t end there.  When EMVI held its own giant chocolate bunny raffle, $1,108 was raised:  $554 of which was donated to the Fulton County YMCA and $554 to the Nigra Arts Center. 

“We cannot thank EMVI Chocolate and the Gelman family enough,” said center director Sue Nigra. “We deeply appreciate their generosity and friendship. Plus - EMVI chocolate is absolutely amazing!”

EMVI Chocolate is also donating chocolate treats for a basket to be raffled off on May 18th during The Lexington Foundation’s Fashion Show and Luncheon.  For more information on the event, visit www.pncreativeartscenter.org.
