Party like we're in a Pandemic!

This year's Chocolate and Wine Lovers' Gala will look a little different! The safety of our guests, staff, volunteers, and Tulalip Resort employees is our top priority. We will adhere to all CDC guidelines and the safety protocols of the Tulalip Resort Casino. Thank you for helping make this a fun and safe event! Check back often for new frequently asked questions and information about safety measures.

Here are some safety protocols to remember for the event:

  • With updated guidance from the Snohomish County Health District, guests are required to wear a mask when not eating at the dinner tables. Masks will be provided for each guest at check-in.
  • We will be asking guests to do a temperature check upon arrival.
  • We will seat 8 people to a table and tables will be 6 feet apart. There will be room to spread out in the silent auction rooms as well as the ballrooms. Please practice social distancing.
  • Sanitizing stations will be available.
  • If you’re feeling unwell, please stay home.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. Feel free to share this information with your table guests. Thank you for helping make this a fun and safe event! 

What can we expect with this year's event?
All of the same things you love about the Chocolate and Wine Lovers' Gala! The evening will begin at 5pm with three silent auctions. While you peruse, sample chocolates from Schocolat in Leavenworth and sip on complimentary champagne. During this time, be sure to check out the Pull-A-Cork, Gift Card Grab, Balloon Drop and buy tickets for the Golden Raffle - all found in the hallway between the ballroom and silent auction rooms. At 7pm dinner will be served and the program will begin - including the Live Auction, Fund-A-Need, and this year - a new kind of Dessert Dash!
How many people will be at a table?
This year we can seat 8 at a table. 
Can we still book rooms at the Tulalip Resort for that night?
Yes! There is a special DVS room rate of $189 (Deluxe King or Queen) if you make your reservation by July 1, 2021. Call 866-716-7162 and mention the DVS “Chocolate Lovers’ Gala.”
