It's almost time for the 13th annual Chocolate Celebration, on Friday, February 6, 2015, 11 am - 2 pm at First Church of the Nazarene, 2734 S. Washington St., Kokomo, IN 46902.

A very special thank you to main sponsor J Edwards Fine Chocolates, Gourmet Cakes and Unique Gifts, as well as additional sponsors, Haynes International and Indiana American Water.

There is no admission to the event with free samples at many of the booths. Tickets are 2/$5 and each ticket may be redeemed at any of the Chocolate Celebration booths for one chocolate item. Tickets are for sale at J Edwards, 2106 W. Sycamore St., or at the Samaritan Caregivers office, 2705 S. Berkley Rd. Tickets may also be purchased at the event for the same price. Many booths will also have other items for sale. Something to remember with Valentine's Day only a week after Chocolate Celebration!

The Grace United Methodist Church Women will have tasty homemade soups and sloppy joes for sale, to eat there or to-go. Meet friends, family and co-workers there for lunch and chocolate or get everything to go! Just remember to come early for best selection! The most popular items will be gone in less than an hour!

This page is the most up-to-date information about who plans to have a booth and what they plan to bring. Many people print this page before they come to the Chocolate Celebration so that they don't miss their favorite chocolate items! Questions? Call 765.453.7611 and let us help you!

Last year's snowiest winter ever didn't stop people from redeeming over 3500 tickets, raising $13,000 to help people 65 and over living at home in Howard County. Join us this year to help Samaritan Caregivers volunteers provide help and hope to needy seniors!
