The annual draws residents from far and near who are united by one common passion: Chocolate (duh).
To make the festival even sweeter, every year a large portion of the proceeds are donated to a Fairfax City non-profit or a non-profit in the greater Washington area that provides services directly to Fairfax City residents.
Non-profits must submit applications to be considered as the recipient for the 2012 award. Applications are accepted by the Chocolate Lovers Festival committee through Nov. 15. The festival is scheduled for March 3 and March 4 next year.
For more information on the grant program, or to submit an application, visit www.chocolatefestival.net or call 703-385-7949.
