Gloversville — The Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts received a donation from EMVI Chocolate.

The Broadalbin business, owned by Irina and Victor Gelman, recently donated a giant chocolate bunny that was raffled off at the Nigra Arts Center’s Easter Bunny Family Fun Day on April 15.

EMVI also donated hundreds of chocolates that were sold to visitors with proceeds benefitting the center. The company also held its own giant chocolate bunny raffle and raised $1,108. Half was donated to the Fulton County YMCA and the other half to the Nigra Arts Center.

“We cannot thank EMVI Chocolate and the Gelman family enough,” said center director, Sue Nigra.

EMVI Chocolate is also donating chocolate treats for a basket to be raffled off on May 18 during The Lexington Foundation’s Fashion Show and Luncheon.
