 20th Anniversary Chocolate Ball


Saturday, March 11, 2017

7pm to Midnight

Turf Valley

Long known as “The Premiere” event in Howard County, the annual Chocolate Ball is the biggest fundraiser for The Arc of Howard County. Generously supported by its sponsors, the black tie event includes music, dancing, a silent auction and an ultimate confection contest. Bakers from all over the state compete to illustrate the theme in sugary goodness.

Proceeds from the Chocolate Ball benefit The Arc of Howard County’s vocational and residential support and services, respite care, and other programs and services for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
