Chocolate Affair: One sweet night


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:
