Chocolate hits Albany in a big way

February 13, 2003

Albany- Chocolate was on the auction block Thursday night.  From chocolate covered strawberries to chocolate paws, South Georgians bid to take their favorite chocolate design home.

The Chocolate Classic is about more than just chocolate, it's about using creative dessert presentations to make money for a good cause, and area chefs told us about their creations.

The Rocket Chef and Owner, Tim Underwood, says, "It took me a while to decide, but I created a huge heart with chocolate adn strawberries."

Scrumptious Strawberry owner, Mary Houston, says, "I created chocolate truffels with nuts inside.  I also have chocolate covered strawberries."

Money from the auction goes to benefit Easter Seals, an organization that helps the disabled.

Director of Development for Easter Seals, Ronald Davis, says, "This event is amazing.  We raise a lot of money each year, and it is a great way for people from all walks of life to interact and work for a good cause."

 Last year, the event raised about eight thousand dollars, and this year, they hope these chocolate creations generate even more.

Awards were given for chocolate designs. The Rocket won first place for Best of Taste, and Henry's won first place for Best of Show.

The most original went to the National Grit's Festivals assorted chocolate grits bon-bons.
