The 24th annual fundraiser appeals to chocolate lovers of all ages.

Profits benefit Eve Incorporated, the local domestic violence shelter serving both Washington and Noble counties.

The event is always a big hit due in part to a number of volunteer chefs.

Some of the delectable treats come from local businesses, but about 70% are homemade.

The fundraiser usually raises about $2,000.

Eve Incorporated board members say that goes a long way for a shelter funded mostly through grants.

"So what's nice about these types of funds is we can use it to match grants and it also is unrestricted in that we can use it for whatever we need. So for instance grants sometimes don't pay for the electricity that keeps the shelter running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks out of the year. So we're able to use these funds any way that's needed for the shelter." says board member Robin Bozian.

The Levee House opens its doors every year for the event.
