Another successful Chocolate Affair!

02.07.17

On Saturday, February 4, 2017, 800+ guests got dressed to the nines and flooded the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel for the biggest Health Care for the Homeless fundraiser of the year – the Chocolate Affair. Thanks to their overwhelming generosity, and a surprise $25,000 match during the Fund-A-Need auction from presenting sponsor CareFirst, the event raised more than $500,000 to support client housing services.

Many thanks go out to the sponsors, table hosts, vendors, volunteers and members of the Health Care for the Homeless staff who made the evening such a roaring success. And an extra special “thank you” to the clients who allowed us to feature their stories, in print and in video, to educate our community about the impossibility of getting and staying healthy without a safe, stable place to live.  

Here’s a glimpse of our community engaged in fellowship and fun at Chocolate Affair 2017 and the inspiring "Housing is health care" video featuring some of our amazing clients.
