The Week of Chocolate, a community-wide festival, is hosted by LIFEDesigns. It has been in existence for over 17 years. The Week of Chocolate was created to give local nonprofit organizations an opportunity to raise money and awareness for their causes. 2016 events supported these causes in Monroe County and surrounding areas: disability, mental illness, homelessness, hunger, poverty, and animals. Although the 2017 schedule is not yet posted, many of these exciting events will be returning again in 2017, with a few brand new additions!
Week of Chocolate 2017 dates: February 3-19th, 2017
