Celebrate Valentine’s Day, Washoe CASA Foundation with “Cocoa for a Cause”
All proceeds from sales of $10 boxes of See’s Chocolates will benefit the local non-profit

RENO, Nev. (January 25, 2017) – Skip the stores this Valentine’s Day and pick up See’s Chocolates from Peppermill Reno on Sunday, February 12, as the resort hosts its “Cocoa for a Cause” fundraiser to benefit the Washoe Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) Foundation

From 10am – 6pm on February 12, 12-piece boxes of truffles will be available for just $10 in the Peppermill hotel lobby. 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to the Washoe CASA Foundation, which provides funding and promotes volunteerism for Washoe County’s CASA Program. Appointed by the court, CASA volunteers work diligently to determine what is in the best interest of abused, neglected and dependent children who are the subject of judicial proceedings and ensure that positive outcomes are achieved. 

“Washoe CASA provides a crucial service to our community, and truly makes a difference in the lives of the children who rely on their volunteers,” said Katie Silva, Corporate Communications Manager for Peppermill Reno. “Buying a box of chocolates from us is the easiest way to help this organization raise the funds it needs to give each child’s case the personal attention it deserves.” 

Peppermill Reno’s Spa Toscana will also celebrate the most romantic day of the year with three Valentine’s Day Specials offered the entire month of February. Guests can enjoy a Strawberry Crème Pedicure for $75, a Pinot Noir Body Scrub treatment for $115, and a Tangerine Chocolate Facial for $125. Additional information on each service can be found at

At Western Village, The Steak House and Pancho & Willie’s will each feature three-course dinner menus available exclusively on Valentine’s Day. View the complete menus at
