Chocolate Affair is Sure to be a Sweet Treat ……

Tickets are now on sale for the Chocolate Affair, an annual event benefiting Sylvania Area Family Services. The event will be held Sunday March 28 from 2 to 4:30 p.m. at the Father Wurzel Family Center on the East Campus of St. Joseph Parish, 5411 S. Main Street. Tickets are $20 in advance and may be purchased from SAFS by calling 419-882-8415. Tickets will be sold the day of the event for $25 at the door.

Jeff Smith, Channel 13 popular morning anchor, is the event's master of ceremonies encouraging people to bid actively on the scores of silent auction items while they sample the array of chocolate desserts and confections donated by local restaurateurs, bakeries, candy makers and more. John Cleveland will provide the entertainment.

This year’s event, with presenting sponsor Franciscan Care Center of Sylvania, will include the signature “mystery bags” along with a raffle for one-of-a-kind table decorations. “The community has again responded generously with donated items,“ said Karen Smith, SAFS board vice chairman and chair of the Chocolate Affair. “Guests will be bidding on such items as a cruise for 4 on the SandPiper, a birthday party at Sylvania Playland, yard décor from Lily’s at Levis and an array of items and gift certificates from local Sylvania merchants including TREO restaurant and bar, Reve, Bumble, Canterbury Homes, Hudson Gallery, Southbriar restaurant, Kevin Charles and Fenwick Gallery.”
