You won't be lying if you tell people that you're trying to help a first-rate organization by eating as much chocolate as you possibly can.

That first-rate organization is The ARC of Winnebago, Boone, and Ogle Counties, and their much-anticipated annual fund-raiser is the Chocoholic Frolic at Giovanni's. The event takes place on February 22nd, which also happens to be George Washington's birthday. I don't know about you, but to me, mountains of chocolate delicacies are far more intriguing and inviting than saving money on sheets and pillowcases during some store's President's Day Sale.

Amy from the ARC, along with Sherrin from BMO Harris Bank stopped by our studios this morning with some details (and a plate of goodies for us) on this year's Chocoholic Frolic:
