Litty's Cakes and Cookies has been a very popular part of the Chocolate Love A'fair for many years.

Tickets will go on sale Monday, Jan. 15, for the 19th Annual Union Hospital Auxiliary “Chocolate Love A’fair”, which is scheduled Feb. 3 (Saturday) from 1 to 4 p.m. in Buckeye Career Center at New Philadelphia.

Tickets are $18 each and can be purchased in the Union Hospital Corner Shop located just inside the main entrance of the hospital, and at Buehler’s Food Market locations in Dover and New Philadelphia. The Corner Shop is open Monday through Friday from 6:45 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

All proceeds from the Chocolate Love A’fair are used to buy patient care equipment and improve facilities at Union Hospital.

Guests attending the event will have the opportunity to sample dozens of desserts created for the event by area chefs, bakers and chocolatiers. Gift baskets, gift certificates, desserts and other items donated by local restaurants and businesses also will be auctioned off during the event.

Attendees will have the opportunity to vote on their favorite chocolate dessert in the “People’s Choice Award” while local celebrity judges will be on hand to select the 2018 “Judge’s Choice Award” recipient.

“I am always excited by the creativity that goes into the flavor combinations and presentation of samples offered by our presenters,” said Auxiliary member Lynn Ballantyne of Dover, event co-chair along with Angie Thomas of Bolivar. “We have many long-time favorites who have been with the Chocolate Love A’fair from the beginning and also have enjoyed the opportunity to introduce new bakeries and businesses to the community over the years.”

Tickets generally sell quickly, but all ticketholders are guaranteed to receive a sample from each exhibitor at the event, Ballantyne said.

“Whether you come when it opens at 1 p.m. or anytime during the afternoon, you will not miss out on any samples,” Ballantyne said.

The Union Hospital Auxiliary hosts several events throughout the year – including the Chocolate Love A’fair – as fund-raisers for Union Hospital, which is a not-for-profit organization. More details about the Auxiliary are available on the UH website and at the Union Hospital Auxiliary page on Facebook.
