After a nearly three-year hiatus, AIDS Foundation Chicago (AFC) will host the return of its famed World of Chocolate fundraiser on Friday, Feb. 17, at Union Station, 225 S. Canal St.

This event features a menu of light bites, uniquely crafted cocktails and global chocolate confections from Chicago's top chefs and chocolatiers from notable restaurants, hotels and bakeries such as Chef Enrique Cortez, CH Distillery, Vanille Patisserie, Noir d'Ebene Chocolat et Patisserie, JoJo's ShakeBAR, Terry's Toffee, the David Rubenstein Forum, Blackout Baking Co., Chocolate Uzma, Chocolates by Maria, Vivere Chocolates and more. (A full list will be announced at a later date.)

Guests will be able to purchase raffle tickets to be entered into a drawing for several prizes, including travel packages and hotel accommodations. Additionally, guests can further their impact through AFC's donation punchboard to receive on the board a mystery prize of equal or greater value to donations. All prizes are donated by local Chicago businesses.

Tickets can be purchased at action.aidschicago.org/event/world-of-chocolate-2023/e438267.
