Calling lovers of all kinds, the 18th annual Chocolate Lover’s Fling, a fundraiser for the San Miguel Resource Center, is just around the corner on Saturday, Feb. 2nd at the Telluride Conference Center from 7:30 to 11:30 pm.

This event helps us to raise one third of our annual budget. If you are a lover of chocolate, it doesn’t get any better than dozens of bite sized chocolate desserts from our premiere regional chefs, all centered around the “Vegas” theme. If you are a lover of dancing, DJ Harry will be helping us move with his exceptional music all night long.
