The Rincon Rotary Club is hosting their Fifth Annual Taste of Chocolate this Sunday, blending a community fundraising event with what should be an experience akin to nirvana for chocolate lovers.

Only those with formidable sweet tooths need apply: more than 30 Tucson chefs and businesses - including Black Crown Coffee, gourmet fudge maker Zink’s Treats and Borderlands Brewing Co. - will roll out their best chocolate creation during the tasting at the Doubletree Hotel, 445 S. Alvernon Way, from 2 to 4 p.m. on March 21.

Visitors looking to be enamored by something other than chocolate can still pick their poison, as beer and wine will also be offered by certain vendors. A raffle and silent auction will accompany the tasting, and if you’re curious as to what prizes will be available (it looks like they’ll run the gamut from free dry cleaning to dental work for enthusiastic tasters' impending cavities), a full list of donors can viewed on the Taste of Chocolate website. And beware, highly persuasive images lie ahead if you click that link!

Taste of Chocolate is a “signature” fundraiser for the Rincon Rotary Club; this year, the proceeds will go towards their scholarship program for high school and college students, as well as the 3rd Grade Dictionary Project, which distributes free dictionaries to local classrooms.

Tickets are $10 for adults, with a $10 2-for-1 price for children under 12 and free admission ages 4 and under. Tickets will be available at the door, but those interested can email wbtus@aol.com to get their tickets in advance.

And remember, it's not indulging if it's for charity.
