If you love chocolate, this is the place to be! Family Promise of Baldwin County is hosting its 11th Holiday Gala, “The Chocolate Affair”, coming up on Thursday, December 6, 2018, at 6:00PM. The event is held at the Daphne Civic Center and features live music by Roman Street, Chef Specialty Choices prepared by local area restaurants, heavy hor d’oeuvres, desserts and a live/silent auction. “The Chocolate Affair” is an annual fundraiser event and all proceeds go directly to support the mission of Family Promise. As they do not receive government funding, they rely primarily on contributions from local supporters and this fundraising event to fulfill their mission.
