19th Annual Chocolate Affair

Per an invitation from fashion designer Victor Rossi, I along with America's Miss 2009 Caroline Kuhlman and the newly crowned America's Miss Maryland 2010 Alison Tripple, attended a benefit for Healthcare for the Homeless (HCH). Outfitted in beautiful gowns, we sampled treats from over 50 of the city's best restaurants, caterers and chocolatiers, mingled with attendees as well as tv, radio and print personalities.

By the way if you've never had chocolate covered BACON, it was surprisingly yum-o! Kind of like a salty/sweet chocolate covered pretzel, genius!

Hailed as one of Baltimore's premier fundraisers, the 19th Annual Chocolate Affair did not disappoint. What started as a meeting of local leaders concerned about poverty and homelessness in the city has outgrown its roots to occupy the entire club level of M&T Bank Stadium. Last year the event raised $165,000 for the healthcare needs for the homeless. Many thanks to the vendors and supporters of HCH, the proceeds of tonight's event will allow Maryland families to become self sufficient.

Over the years HCH has witnessed the number of people seeking their services rise. In addition to direct health-related services, HCH advocates for an end to poverty and homelessness at both the local and national levels.
