Boozy Hot Cocoa and Cookies Benefits Toys for Tots
December 1 – 31
Each month at Epic, pastry chef Jessica Ellington creates a special dessert for a great cause. During the month of December, her “Boozy Hot Cocoa and Cookies” will benefit Toys for Tots. Chef Ellington’s decadent dessert features bourbon-spiked hot cocoa topped with vanilla bean marshmallows and served with housemade cookies (gingerbread; raspberry linzer; butter spritz; and chocolate-almond biscotti). The Boozy Hot Cocoa and Cookies ($10) is available from December 1 to 31. At the end of the month, Epic will donate a portion of the proceeds from each dessert sold to the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots organization.
Photos are available. Epic is open for dinner Monday through Thursday, 5:30 p.m.-10 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 5:30 p.m.-11 p.m. Lunch is served Monday-Friday, 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.
U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program
The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted. The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.
