About The Chocolate Affair
The Chocolate Affair is an annual fundraiser for Home of Hope, a nonprofit, community-based organization that provides residential and vocational programs to persons with developmental and other disabilities.
The event was started in 2008 to support the Home of Hope programs and operations.
“Contributions to the Chocolate Affair helps Home of Hope achieve our mission of promoting choices, independence and a meaningful way of life to the more than 250 individuals we serve,” said Home of Hope CEO Dr. Ralph Richardson. “As state and federal funding sources continue to be reduced, the cost of and need for our services continues to increase. This makes events such as the Chocolate Affair vital to our services. We are very appreciative of the vendors and guests who make this event possible.”
