QUINCY, Massachusetts- March 27, 2018- The Quincy Chamber of Commerce and Quincy 2000 Collaborative award Purefections Chocolate the First Annual Bruce Wood Grant; a $5,000 grant for local small business who exemplifies founding Quincy Chamber Board Member Bruce Wood’s business sense and commitment to the community he loved.  The grants purpose is to make a significant impact and help strengthen the business.

 We are overwhelmed by gratitude and emotion by accepting First Annual Bruce Wood Grant. Tonight was an amazing evening, said Purefections owners and sisters Christina Trifone Bartkus and Lisa Trifone. We would like to thank the Chamber, our customers, the Wood Family, our family and all the people who found us worthy of this grant. We truly love you all and hope to continue to use Bruces wisdom as our business grows!
Purefections chocolate is owned and operated by lifetime Quincy residents, sisters Christina Bartkus and Lisa Trifone. Both sisters are self-proclaimed chocoholics and founded their business from the inspiration of their parents Geraldine & William Trifone.

For the past 50 years, Geri has been making homemade delights almost daily for her eight children; as a result, these two sisters grew up eating their mother’s amazing brownies and fudge and decided these treats were too good to keep to themselves. Lisa, with a culinary background and Christina with a corporate and artistic background, put their minds together to make something so great even better.

After an exhaustive search for only the finest chocolate they could find, they came across an exceptional tasting pure Belgian chocolate that enhanced the original creations that Geri would whip up in her Quincy kitchen. They sought out new ideas and concepts for their chocolate and found other chocolate makers who could bring the quality and uniqueness for which they had been searching for their little chocolate shop.
