Indulge in a worthy cause while spending an elegant evening of film, music and lavish chocolate creations.

World Community is showcasing Camino fair trade chocolate with A Chocolate afFAIR on March 22 at 7 p.m. at the Upper Florence Filberg Hall.

Comox Valley chefs and chocolatiers will prepare chocolate in all its magnificent and tasty forms. You’ll have plenty of opportunity to sample a variety of delectable fair trade desserts created by Locals, Union Street Grill, Kingfisher Oceanside Resort, Zocalo, Willovic Bakery and Sweet Surprise.

Special culinary guests will be the senior foods class from Highland Secondary School. Blue Moon Winery and Dark Side Chocolates will pair for a gourmet treat. World Community coffee, tea and hot chocolate will also be served.

But that’s just the start!

The newly-released documentary, Nothing Like Chocolate, will be featured. This engaging film takes us to “the rainforests of Grenada, where anarchist chocolate-maker Mott Green operates an unusual chocolate factory based on fairness, community, and sustainability.”

The Valley’s very own Juno-nominated and award-winning songwriter, Helen Austin, will provide the entertainment. She has written and will perform a special Chocolate Song just for us!

Add to this a silent auction and door prizes and you’re promised a great night out. Funds raised from this event will go towards supporting the work of World Community, both locally and internationally.

Tickets for A Chocolate afFAIR are $20 and available by advance purchase only at Bop City Records and Laughing Oyster Bookstore in Courtenay, Church Street Bakery in Comox and Dark Side Chocolates in Cumberland. Only 250 tickets will be sold.

World Community is a Comox Valley-based non-profit society and the only local supplier of organic fairly traded coffee, tea and chocolate that contributes a significant portion of its profits and efforts to Comox Valley groups and causes.

For details, phone 250-337-5412.
