The 14th annual Chocolate Affair celebrated love and awareness in a tasty way around Olde Town on Feb. 6.
The event, a fundraiser for the Ralston House, an Arvada nonprofit serving children and teen victims of sexual assault and abuse, raised more than $5,000. From toffees to chocolate milk, Willy Wonka-themed cakes and everything in between, attendees roamed the downtown scene to taste a variety of chocolate and satisfy their sweet tooths.
“I was here last year, and it was great,” Jackie Wolfe, an Arvada resident, said after sniffing some chocolate whiskey during the event. “They better get ready for the light rail next year, and have more chocolate!”
