The Art of Chocolate is LIFEDesigns‘ signature fundraising event and silent auction every year, and takes place during our community wide Month of Chocolate. This year, our event will be on Zoom and show a variety of videos and live entertainment that focuses on LIFEDesigns and the clients we serve.
In order to keep everyone safe, our virtual event gives the opportunity for the community to come together, to learn about LIFEDesigns, and to raise the necessary funds to support our programs.
