Calling all chocolate lovers — the Southern Cultural Heritage Foundation’s second annual Chocolate Affair fundraiser is Thursday night.

Entertainment will be by local pianist Jim Robinson and vocalist Maria Adona, back by popular demand, Kirklin said.

Tickets for the event, to be decorated with creations by Uptown Florists, are $20 for SCHF members and $30 for nonmembers.

They are available in advance only, at the SCHF business office or at Paper Plus on Washington Street.

Kirklin said 150 people attended last year’s event. “Hopefully, we’ll sell out again this year,” she said.

As of Monday, a few dozen tickets were left, Kirklin said.

Ticketholders will also receive a 10 percent discount Thursday at participating restaurants, including Café Anchuca, Duff’s Tavern & Grille, Monsour’s at the Biscuit Company and Roca.
