On Nov. 29 the AIDS Foundation of Chicago satisfied the sweet cravings of more than 1,000 guests at the 11th annual World of Chocolate Gala. Thirty of Chicago’s premiere chocolatiers and caterers created cocoa confections ranging from traditional truffles to chocolate-covered mashed potatoes, which were judged by a panel that included RPM chef Doug Psaltis, The Bristol chef Amanda Rockman and WLS-Channel 7’s Kathy Brock. Five awards were given to the evening’s most creative concoctions, and $100,000 was raised for the non-profit’s mission of battling the spread of HIV/AIDS.
The Sun-Times was the media sponsor of this event.
