Due to the ongoing issues presented to us during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 23rd Annual A Chocolate Affair, scheduled for February 8, 2021. We are hopeful that circumstances will improve this year for all of us and we can begin making plans to come together in 2022.
In the meantime, we will continue to support and impact our community, just as we have for 22 years. Though we can't offer the fun and excitement we have all come to love at the Chocolate Affair, we ask that you still consider sending a gift of support. Community donations drive our ability to directly help families in our immediate community improve their lives through a focus on education and scholarships; Helping Hands grants; and community volunteer projects, with a particular focus on those benefiting women and children.

We truly look forward to seeing you at our next event in 2022. Please continue to stay safe and healthy and know that we are so grateful for your generosity and continued support.
