Art of Chocolate 2018

About This Event

When: Feb 10, 2018 5:30 pm

The Art of Chocolate is just about the only event where you get to see an artist paint a live model in....Chocolate! Throughout the evening, a Mardi Gras theme will be featured in the art, food, music, and auction items! Wearing masks is encouraged! In fact, we'll provide you with a great selection of masks if you don't have one already. The evening will begin with an online auction, hors d'oeuvres by Indiana Memorial Union, live musical entertainment, and of course some of our favorite cocktails. Just when you've worked up an appetite, dinner will be presented by IMU's head chef, and feature a 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 local chefs have to offer!

We'd like to recognize the chefs and businesses who have already committed to hosting a table at the Art of Chocolate this year! Thank you!

Event to Support LIFEDesigns, Inc.

LIFEDesigns  believes that everyone should be included in their community and 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.
