***Due to weather uncertainty in the Hudson Valley,
sherry b dessert studio has moved this Sunday’s benefit for
the Wolf Conservation Center to a snow date of next
Sunday, January 31 from 2pm to 4pm.
Sherry Blockinger, owner and pastry chef of sherry b dessert studio in Chappaqua, has many passions.
WAG editor Georgette Gouveia talked to her about one of them – chocolate – for our “Passion Fruits” issue last July.
Now, we’ve heard that Blockinger is helping broaden awareness about the importance of wildlife conservation by hosting “Stand for Wolves” from 2 to 4 p.m. Jan. 31.***
The free, educational, family event is designed to raise awareness (and funds) for the Wolf Conservation Center (WCC) in South Salem, an organization WAG has worked with in the past as well.
Maggie Howell, the executive director of the WCC, and an eighth-grade student from John Jay Middle School will join Blockinger in an afternoon that will explore the critically endangered Mexican Gray Wolf and the Red Wolf and efforts to preserve and recover these species. In addition, ambassador wolf Atka will make a special appearance.
Blockinger’s signature dessert collection will be available for purchase, including a limited-edition wolf pack collection featuring vanilla wolf print cookies finished with white chocolate and sparkling sugar ($3 each or $5 for two).
All the profits from the cookies for conservation and the event will be donated to the WCC to support its work in ecosystem education, species preservation and environmental advocacy.
The sherry b dessert studio is at 65 King St.
