Chocolate lover’s fantasy

Posted By: Jenn Hatcher

  The Historic Haymarket was filled with the sweet smell of chocolate Thursday night. The 29th Annual Chocolate Lover’s Fantasy fundraising event brought professional & local chefs together with chocolate connoisseurs, to raise money for The Historic Haymarket District and Lincoln TeamMates!

The event included chocolate with bacon, blue hot chocolate, bourbon and chocolate and much more.

The Lincoln Haymarket Development Corporation, a non-profit board, is committed to continuing the economic development, revitalization, preservation, and growth of Lincoln‘s Historic Haymarket District.

The mission of the TeamMates Mentoring Program of Lincoln is to positively impact the world by inspiring youth to reach their full potential. TeamMates mentors are volunteers from within our community who spend one hour, once a week during the school year building a relationship with a student. The objective is to encourage the child and give a sense of hope, purpose and vision. Mentors serve as a good role model and dedicate themselves making a difference in the life of a young person. TeamMates youth consistently maintain or improve their grades, school attendance and behavior.

Proceeds from The 29th Annual Chocolate Lover’s Fantasy event will help TeamMates continue its very important work of providing a caring adult mentors for more than 1,100 school-aged youth.
