Chocolate Festival 2021 - Virtual Raise the Paddle

by Donald Heiter Community Center

Each February, Chocolate Festival hosts over 450 guests through various chocolate themed events, including the downtown Chocolate Tour and Chocolate Gala. It is our single largest fundraiser that supports our work. 

The Donald L. Heiter Community Center (DHCC) is a non-profit organization which strives to be the hub of community activity by providing innovative and responsive programs, welcoming facilities to house multigenerational activities, coordinating diverse community resources, addressing community needs, and supporting the wellness of all its people.

Without contributions from this important event, we are faced with a budgetary shortfall and we need your support!

Due to the pandemic, Chocolate Festival will look a little different this year. In lieu of the in-person Chocolate Gala, participants will enjoy a virtual event. Traditionally, one of the most exciting activities of the Gala is the Raise the Paddle portion of the live auction. To help us meet our fundraising goal of $35,000, we are asking you to raise your virtual paddle and donate here to support the DHCC!

Help by giving the gift of community so we can continue being a Light in the Center of Town!
