That’s what Valentine’s Day, or, more specifically, the Janice Mason Art Museum fundraiser “A Chocolate Affair” is for. For the fourth year of the event, local “chocolate artists” prepared a diverse array of goodies, which were all laid out on tables inside the Fairholme Victorian House Saturday night. Crowds came in to eat during three sessions at 6, 7 and 8 p.m.
“How could you beat it?” said attendee Dan Quick, who has been there every year. “I don’t see how anyone could miss this.”
Museum Board President Jean Martin said that at least 90 tickets (out of 100) had been sold for the first two sessions. She said that many of the chefs who had prepared treats in the past helped out again this year, as well as a few new ones. The museum also found a little free help this year since board member Vicki Karrigan’s daughter, Callie Karrigan, is a freshman at Murray State University and her sorority, Alpha Sigma Alpha, needed to fulfill some community service hours, Martin said.
Board member Paul Fourshee said this year’s event was as exciting as always and that it always nice to see new museum members show up.
