SIOUX FALLS, S.D. -

Coming up in October, NARAL Pro-Choice South Dakota is hosting a fundraiser to help further their mission. There will be a dinner, featured speakers, and of course, chocolate.

Sawm Spawn, the executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice SD, says the featured speaker at the event will be Jaclyn Friedman. She's an author and has written a few popular books, among which are "What You Really Really Want." Spawn says Friedman "writes about healthy sexuality for women and girls." There will also be a live art auction and a live dessert auction. Adam Jorgensen, programming coordinator for NARAL Pro-Choice SD, says the art items up for auction are also available to look at ahead of the event at Coffea in Sioux Falls.

Spawn says the funds raised from the Pro-Chocolate Gala goes for their political funds for lobbying, travel expenses, and salaries for their 501-C4.

The Pro-Chocolate Gala will be Friday, October 7 starting at 7 p.m. Tickets include the dinner and entrance to the event, and will be available until Saturday, October 1. For more information, click here.
