The Haywood Jackson Volunteer Center is looking for bakers to bake their favorite chocolate or dessert.

The 15th annual Taste of Chocolate, sponsored by First Citizens Bank, will be April 19 at the Maggie Valley Country Club. This year’s categories are Amateur, Bed and Breakfast, Professional, and Baker's Choice. There will be a panel of judges to sample chocolate recipes and desserts, and prizes will be awarded for first-third places in each category.

The Taste of Chocolate is a fundraiser for the Haywood Jackson Volunteer Center with all proceeds going to connect volunteers in the community and assist seniors with the NC SHIIP program.  For more information, call  356-2833 or e-mail

It’s a fun evening of over-indulgence in chocolate and desserts, so start thinking about what to make.
