If you’re ready to enjoy a fun, formal evening of decadence and delight, you won’t want to miss this year’s Chocolate Lover’s Affair. Brought to you by The Lindsborg Arts Council, this event will tantalize your taste buds and appeal to your artistic senses. It’s a creative celebration where you can sip champagne, sample chocolate delicacies and vote for your favorite chocolate-infused recipe. Put in your vote for your favorite in the place setting contest; each is designed with an original theme, some of which are valentine-inspired. Take part in the art auction featuring a variety of works donated by area artists. Rich, delicious baked goods will also be put up on the block. All proceeds go to benefit a scholarship fund organized by the Lindsborg Arts Council for local Smoky Valley High School students pursuing an art-related field of study. This charming event will be held February 12, 2011 in Lindsborg, Kansas. For more information, contact the Lindsborg Arts Council at 785-227-3032.
