The contest is LLF’s annual effort to encourage shoppers to spend their dollars at local retailers. Each chocolate bar costs $6 and bar proceeds — .50 cents sold in stores, $1 sold at EVO, and $3 from the bars sold at the organization’s Block Party — will go to support LLF.
LLF’s Block Party, featuring local artisans, food trucks, music, and libations, will be held at 1630 Meeting St. from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sat. Nov. 21. General admission is $10 and kids are free. To purchase tickets, click here.
