Chocolate Affair: One sweet night

02.04.19

On Saturday, February 2, 800+ spectacularly dressed chocolate lovers filed into the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront for the sweetest night of the year. By the end of the night, our incredible Health Care for the Homeless community raised enough money to give 1,000 people the care they need to regain health, hope and opportunity.

For Vanessa Morgan, the shining star of the evening’s unforgettable video, that means celebrating two years sober and rediscovering an abiding respect for herself. “Why am I so happy?" she asks. "Because now I am confident that I can live without drugs. I have somewhere to lay my head and my family loves me. I’m so glad that my past is not my future.”

Thank you to all the dedicated volunteers, chefs, sponsors, staff and YOU for making the 2019 Chocolate Affair such a magical night of good food and great fun. And a special thank you to our sponsors for making it all possible:

Have you made any changes during the pandemic that you’ll carry forward? For us, providing care over the phone to clients like Antonio Barnes has been a major breakthrough.

Before COVID-19, Antonio was a regular at our Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) group where he looked forward to therapy, Suboxone and peer support in facing over 20 years of depression and substance use.

Bushra Lohrasbi is always on the run—literally. And not even a quarantine can stop her.

It was late-April and Bushra was like most of us: stuck at home. COVID-19 had brought an early end to her final semester at Penn State, and she was back at her parents’ house in Ellicott City, looking for a way to help.
