New York, NY — It was clear that cabin fever had set in as more than 100 young professionals from the New York area sought the warmth of Dylan’s Candy Bar on February 11th for a benefit cocktail party hosted by the CancerCare Junior Committee.

The 2nd Annual Sweet Charity: Candy for a Cause raised awareness and funds for CancerCare’s free support services for people facing cancer.

This sugar-infused annual event featured beer from Brooklyn Brewery, red and white Bouchaine wine and signature cocktail creations by Stoli Vodka. The lively crowd also snacked on savory sandwiches from Haven Restaurant and Dylan’s famous cupcakes and candy.

An air of anticipation filled the room throughout the evening as guests browsed the raffle and auction items and purchased their chances to win exciting prizes including two tickets to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, a gift certificate to Callaway Golf, dinner at Bobby Vans and salon services at Pepper Pastor Salon. Also adding a sense of adventure to the evening, attendees lined up to seek insight into their futures with psychic readings from Ms. Sharon.
