The third annual “Chocolate & Wine Affair” conducted March 23 raised funds for Faith in Action for Cass County and the HOWA Family Center.

Three businesses and nine individuals participated. Two Judge’s Choice Awards were given to Lois Bohanon and to Zita Dippold of Chase on the Lake. Prizes included $200 gift package. Two People’s Choice Awards were given to Vicki Daniels and Lois Bohanon, who each won $150 in Leech Lake Area Chamber Bucks.

The Ultimate Chocolate Cookbooks, with recipes from each entrant in the inaugural year and a supplement for 2013 and 2014, are now available by contacting HOWA Family Center or Faith in Action.

Sponsored by the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe and Northern Lights Event Center, all contributions from the event go directly to support individuals of all ages in our communities through the various programs offered by HOWA Family Center, including Kinship and Youth Mentoring, and by Faith in Action for Cass County’s “Neighbors Helping Neighbors” volunteer assistance with transportation, visiting, respite, and meal delivery.

Contact the HOWA Family Center at 218-547-4273 or Theresa Eclov of Faith in Action at 218-675-5435, for information about programs, services and volunteer opportunities, or to get a new Chocolate Cookbook.
