Chocolate Sunday moves to FMS

Nov 29, 2012
PHOTO SUBMITTED Chocolate Sunday committee member Elizabeth Kelley puts the finishing touches on one of the more than 100 gift baskets up for bid at Sunday’s Chocolate Sunday from 2-4 p.m. Sunday at Fairfield Middle School. The fundraiser, in its 19h year, benefits the Fairfield High School drama, instrumental music and vocal music programs.

Sweet sounds and sweet treats for all will be at the annual Chocolate Sunday 2-4 p.m. Sunday at the Fairfield Middle School.

The change of venue won’t affect the gift baskets, chocolate and entertainment that people have come to expect from Chocolate Sunday.

“If anything, we will actually have more space at the middle school,” said Sue Hucke, co-chairwoman of the event.

Talented FHS vocal and instrumental musicians, under the direction of Jim Edgeton, Zach Reiter, and Connie Keller, will provide entertainment while guests nibble on holiday treats and browse through more than 100 gift baskets available for silent auction.

“As always, we’re grateful for the dozens of businesses and individuals who have contributed items for the gift baskets,” said Hucke. “We have such a wide range of items to bid on, there really is something for everyone.”

In addition to the gift baskets, tickets will be sold throughout the afternoon for two separate raffles. One raffle prize is a quilt with a chocolate theme, constructed by Mary Phipps and quilted by Jeanie Belgarde. The other is a package including an overnight at Catfish Bend Inn and Spa at Pzazz in Burlington with four tickets to Huck’s Harbor water park, four breakfast buffets at the Edgewater Grille and four $25 gift cards to Fun City. Drawings for both raffles will be held at the end of the event.

The annual fundraiser benefits the FHS drama, instrumental music and vocal music programs and is in its 19th year.

Tickets will be available at the door for $5.

Doors will open at 1:45 p.m. at Fairfield Middle School.
