IMG_1783The Scranton Cultural Center was filled with chocolate on October 19 for the tenth anniversary of the Chocoholic Frolic with a record crowd of over 400 people in attendance. This year’s event hosted 18 local vendors of all things chocolate,  11 of them first-timers to the Frolic. The vendors included: Fine Desserts, Bella Faccias, The Dessert Corner, Babby Cakes, Pittston Bakery, Gertrude Hawk, Creative Cakes, Four Points by Sheraton, Edible Arrangements. Market St. Bar & Grill, Barbour’s Bakery, Cuppa Cake Café, Glenburn Grill, Lynn Sandy’s Bakery, Iron Pierce Catering, Carl Von Luger’s, Christa Lynn’s, and Jon Stopay Candies. Four Points by Sheraton won the Chocolate Challenge which was voted on by participants for their espresso-rubbed short ribs in a chocolate stout sauce. Also, a trip to Las Vegas was raffled off this year! The event raised over $15,000 for the agency’s literacy education programs. Thank you to all of our sponsors including: Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs, AAA Travel, PNC Bank, Comcast, Amerihealth Northeast, Lamar Advertising, The Times-Tribune, Entercom, and WNEP-TV.
