Week of Chocolate 2017

Week of Chocolate 2017

About This Event

The Week of Chocolate is a festival of different chocolate themed events that will delight your tastebuds! Each of these events is a fundraising event for a non-profit organization in Bloomington. LIFEDesigns organizes the festival, and partners with several businesses to host many of these events.

Our favorite event is the Art of Chocolate! This event begins the evening with a Mardi Gras themed online auction, hors d'oeuvres, entertainment, and of course some of our favorite cocktails. The evening then turns to a dinner and live auction. Make sure you save some room for dessert, because you'll finish the evening sampling a wide array of the most exciting chocolate desserts Bloomington chef's have to offer. This year, we're excited to announce the return of the Chocolate Painted people! You won't want to miss this amazing and delightful evening!

Event to Support LIFEDesigns, Inc.

LIFEDesigns  believes that no one should be segregated from their community and that everyone has talents and abilities. We exist to provide the support and opportunities that people with disabilities need to achieve their goals. This is reflected in everything we do, from our in home support services, community education, supported employment, to Housing by LIFEDesigns.


Our organization was founded in 1982 by a group of parents who had children with disabilities. They believed that everyone deserved to live a life of purpose, and  there should be a better life for their children than living in an institution. Our values remain focused on community and inclusion. We choose to see the positive attributes that everyone possesses and  define people by their abilities rather than the challenges we all face. We strive to support our customers to find valued social roles, which connects them with their highest purpose—using their strengths for something greater than themselves.

LIFEDesigns along with the Monroe County Parks and Recreation Department and many other partners, built the Accessible Playscape at Karst Farm Park in Bloomington, Indiana. This is a truly unique project in the area, featuring a wheelchair accessible playground with a splash pad, and ramps that lead up to slides. LIFEDesigns is also a housing developer, and has built several projects focusing on Affordable Housing that is both accessible and stylish. Crawford Apartments is permanent supportive housing, a truly unique development providing permanent homes for people who are chronically homeless and have a disability.  Crawford Apartments was recognized with an award from the Lt. Governor of Indiana in 2014 for Community and Economic Development.
