A 'Pawfect' Chance for fame!

A 'Pawfect' Chance for fame!

What could dogs, calendars, photographs and chocolate possible have in common? Let us explain!! Operation Freedom Paws (visit their website at info@ofpcanada.org) is holding a contest... Submit a picture of your dog (that's the dog and photograph connection) and if it's chosen as one of the "top dog" pics, your pooch could end up on a calendar to be admired by thousands! (that's the calendar piece).  Where does chocolate come into this equation? Well, Hot Chocolates is proud to be one of the sponsors of this unique non-profit that assists in rehabilitating and training rescue dogs to provide companionship and assistance to folks with PTSD and/or various medical conditions.  Along with your favourite "pooch pose", send an entry fee of $20 and keep your fingers crossed that your canine buddy is one of the top 12 for the 2023 calendar. For more info on the contest, visit https://www.gogophotocontest.com/ofpcanada

Together we have raised over $1200 for Rotarians in the Ukraine to use where it is most needed.

Thanks to everyone who came out and supported us!

Help a Bro, Buy a Mo'

OK guys ... Movember is all about YOU!!  It's never easy to talk about our health. Especially things like testicular cancer, prostate cancer and so on.  We get it!  So instead of talking about it, we're having a little fun at Hot Chocolates and Cakebread Artisan Bakery raising awareness and raising some money for Movember Canada.  ( http://ca.movember .com/report-cards).   We've got your upper lip covered with our chocolate moustaches and our cookies made especially for the occasion are delicious.  So Help a Bro!  Buy a Mo!
