Platter’s Chocolates is hosting our 4th Annual Sponge Candy 5K on September 26, 2020. This will be a fun, family-oriented event to raise money for a charity that has captured the hearts of all us here at Platter’s Chocolates – Olivia’s Bears
At 3:30 pm, the 4th Annual “Run for Sponge” 5k will commence. Our neighbors at Woodcock Brother’s Brewing will have food, refreshments, and live music to keep the party going after the race! There will be prizes, giveaways, and of course LOTS of sponge candy! Net proceeds from the race will be donated to Olivia’s Bears!
The race will start on Ohio Street and finish in front of the Platter’s Chocolate Factory in the newly renovated Wurlitzer Building in North Tonawanda, New York using USATF Certified Course #NY15045.
