Love was in the air on Feb. 8 when the sweetest fundraiser returned to the Carbondale Civic Center and chocolate lovers rejoiced. The annual Taste of Chocolate celebrated 20 years. Attendees had a chance to sample unique culinary creations from local restaurants and vendors -- both sweet and savory -- each including chocolate among its ingredients, and the opportunity to take home special auction items. Proceeds benefited The Women's Center which helps survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.
