Who doesn’t love chocolate?

Indulge in an elegant evening of film, music and lavish chocolate creations while supporting worthy causes. World Community is showcasing Camino Fair Trade chocolate at A Chocolate Affair on Thursday , April 17 at 7 p.m. at the Upper Florence Filberg Hall.

Local chefs and chocolatiers will be preparing chocolate in all its magnificent and tasty forms. You’ll have plenty of opportunity to sample a variety  of delectable fair trade treats, both savoury and sweet, created by chefs from Union Street Grill, Locals, Zocalo, Tria Culinary, As You Like It Catering, and the Gourmet Girls.

As a special treat, the evening will open with an aperitif, Dark Side Chocolate cup with Blue Moon Winery’s newly released raspberry port. World Community tea and coffee will also be served.

This event is just before Easter  weekend so you’ll be able to purchase Camino Fair Trade Chocolate Bunnies as well as other  fair trade chocolate treats from World Community and Dark Side Chocolates.

Award-winning singer-songwriter Sue Pyper will provide musical entertainment. Sue’s music is rooted in acoustic folk and her voice is smooth, lilting and emotionally expressive. She’s also very funny!

The new film Semisweet: Life in Chocolate travels to four vastly different places around the globe with some quirky characters whose lives have been intrinsically transformed by chocolate. We also see the positive impact of buying fair trade chocolate.

Add to this a silent auction of quality goods, and door prizes and you’re promised a great night out.

Funds raised from the event will go towards supporting the work of World Community, locally and internationally. World Community contributes a significant portion of its profits and efforts to  Comox Valley groups and causes.

Tickets are available by advance purchase only at Bop City Records and Laughing Oyster  Bookshop in Courtenay, Dark Side Chocolates in Cumberland, and Church Street Bakery in Comox.  Only 240 tickets will be sold.

For details, phone 250-337-5412,
