The 15th annual Taste of Chocolate...Plus, sponsored by First Citizens Bank, will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, April 19, at the Maggie Valley Country Club. Taste of Chocolate...Plus is a fundraiser for the Haywood Jackson Volunteer Center.

There will be entertainment, a wine bar, a silent auction featuring over 80 items, a milk fountain, 50/50 raffle, and yes, all the chocolate a person could ever want.

Tickets are $12 and $15 at the door and are now available at Chocolate Bear, Blue Ridge Books, Quilters Quarters, Dillsboro Chocolate Factory, Heavenly Chocolate Shoppe, Maggie Valley Club and at the Senior Resource Center. Credit cards will be accepted.

Money raised goes to connect volunteers with 60 organizations in the community. The  Haywood Jackson Volunteer Center connected over 73 new people last year and helped 416 people with Medicare through NCSHIIP (North Carolina Seniors' Health Insurance Information Program) find prescription and health plans. Volunteers saved people with Medicare over $149,000 in prescription costs in 2013.

There is still time to donate a silent auction item. Call John at 356-2833 for more information or to donate an item for the auction.
