The March 14 event, sponsored by HMT Electric, featured Spafford as Special Guest and 10 of the best Master Pastry Chefs and Chocolatiers in San Diego. The Chefs design magnificent chocolate sculptures up to 3 feet in height and bring their best chocolate creations for guests to eat as part of the annual fundraiser.

Thank you to Master of Ceremonies Allie Wagner from KUSI, our sponsors, our Chocolatiers, the many business that donated to our auction, our guests and all of you who helped make the annual gala such a success.

Creations in Chocolate has now raised more than $1.1 million for homeless, runaway, abused and other at-risk youth and their families. Last year, San Diego Youth Services helped more than 23,000 youth and their families.
