The community is invited to attend a special presentation by Shari's Berries founder Shari Fitzpatrick on Monday, April 22 at 6:30pm at Folsom Lake College's El Dorado Center (6699 Campus Drive in Placerville) in the Community Room (room C-102).
Shari Fitzpatrick is the creator of the world's finest line of gourmet-dipped strawberries, the renowned Shari's Berries. While working as a mortgage broker in Los Angeles, she began making potential clients handmade chocolate dipped strawberries. The incredible popularity of these memorable edible gifts soon outpaced the success of her original career. In 1989, with a $1,500 cash advance, having just moved to a new town, Shari took her passion and hobby of chocolate dipping strawberries and turned it into a business. An acclaimed inspirational speaker and author, her new book is titled Berried in Chocolate, Shari entertains audiences of all ages and backgrounds while sharing her down-to-earth, heartfelt business story. For over 22 years, Shari's story and her creations have attracted international attention through appearances in O Magazine, on the Today Show, The Apprentice, In Style Magazine, People Magazine, The Price is Right, Wheel of Fortune, QVC, and Chicken Soup for the Entrepreneurial Soul.
Admission is free (a daily parking pass can be purchased for $1). Books will be available for purchase at the event including a special chocolate dipped version....yes, chocolate dipped. According to Shari, "The first book in the world with calories." A map to the El Dorado Center can be found here.
This event is part of Folsom Lake College's Speaker Series and will be hosted by Political Science Professor Deanne Repetto and the EDC Student Activities Club.
