DOVER - Chocolate is a big hit. Just ask the members of the Union Hospital Auxiliary, whose 21st annual “Chocolate Love A’fair” event held Feb. 1 was another outstanding success.
All 400 tickets to the event were sold and all ticketholders came away with sample treats from the participating bakers, dessert experts and chocolatiers. All proceeds from the Chocolate Love A’fair support the Union Hospital Auxiliary and are used to buy patient care equipment and improve facilities at Union Hospital.
Litty’s Cakes and Cookies of New Philadelphia earned the “People’s Choice Award,” after receiving the most ticketholder votes, while Sugarfuse! of Dover received the “Judge’s Choice Award,” from a panel of judges assembled to taste all of the entries.
A new chocolate-themed event is scheduled Feb. 15 at 7 p.m. in The Venue restaurant in New Philadelphia. “An Affair to Remember,” will feature a selection of specially prepared chocolate-infused dishes, paired with wines selected by the culinary staff at The Venue.
“This is another way to enjoy chocolate in a relaxed atmosphere and support the Auxiliary at the same time,” says Angie Thomas of Bolivar, an Auxiliary member who is assisting with hosting the event. “We are really happy to be able to offer a new event like this through the support and cooperation of The Venue.”
Tickets for this event cost $65 and are limited due to seating constraints. They can be obtained by contacting (330)260-4770 or email@example.com.
