Barley Mow gave out samples of S’mores Imperial Stout, Chocolate Coffee Stout and Peanut Butter/Chocolate Slumgullion at the Rotary Club's Dec. 8 Death by Chocolate at Largo Cultural Center.
LARGO – More than 420 chocolate enthusiasts came to the Largo Cultural Center for a sampling of the spread at the Rotary Club of Largo’s Death by Chocolate Dec. 6.

Most importantly, the club reached its goal of raising $30,000 to benefit children’s programs and initiatives the club supports throughout the year.

“It really turned out to be an elegant event,” said club treasurer Karisa Rojas-Norton said. “I know many people commented that they looked forward to next year.”

Fifteen chocolatiers representing local businesses and community organizations participated in the 18th annual event. Along with $20,000 in sponsorships and $8,000 in ticket sales, the club raised about $2,000 through a silent auction during the event, club president Steven Moore reported.

All of the auction items were sold, and attendees were happy with the packages offered this year as well as the spread of chocolate provided, Rojas-Norton said. The club will meet in January to discuss the results of the fundraiser.

To join the club, donate or for more information, call Moore at 798-7816 or visit www.largorotary.com.
