Art of Chocolate 2019
About This Event
The Art of Chocolate might be the only event where you get to see an artist paint a live model in....Chocolate! Throughout the evening, a Mardi Gras theme will be featured in the art, food, music, and auction items! Wearing masks is encouraged! In fact, we'd love it if you'd buy one at the event. You can start collecting masks for each year you attend!
The evening will begin with an online auction, hors d'oeuvres by Indiana Memorial Union, live musical entertainment, and of course some of our favorite cocktails. Just when you've worked up an appetite, dinner will be served and feature a live auction. Make sure you save some room for dessert, because you'll finish the evening sampling a wide array of the most exciting chocolate desserts local chefs have to offer!
All proceeds/profits of this event support LIFEDesigns programs. LIFEDesigns promotes independence for people with disabilities. Our staff provide long term supports to our clients who primarily have some type of developmental or intellectual disability. Our focus is on helping to create opportunities for people to engage socially with their community, find a job in the community, and learn life skills so they can live independently in their own home. Medicaid funding reimburses LIFEDesigns for providing these services so our clients don't have to pay out of pocket. Unfortunately, Medicaid only reimburses about 85% of the true costs of providing the staff supports. This leaves a gap of about $400,000 per year that LIFEDesigns must raise in order to be able to continue providing services. Your donation (and attendance!) helps to cover this gap.
