Chicago, IL - The AIDS Foundation of Chicago held its 14th annual World of Chocolate winter gala on Thursday, Dec. 3, at the historic Chicago Union Station.

Over 1,200 chocolate-lovers enjoyed tasty morsels from 25 of Chicago's finest chocolatiers, chefs and caterers during a hotsy-totsy trip back to the roaring twenties.

AFC hosted the one-of-a-kind celebration to commemorate World AIDS Day and celebrate the progress the HIV/AIDS community has made in ending the epidemic.

Celebrity judges crowned the night's best creations, which include People's Choice: InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile, Best Sweet: Kendall College of Culinary Arts, Best Savory: Chicago Athletic Association Hotel / Cindy's Rooftop, Best Libation: CH Distillery and Cocktail Bar, Best Small Business: Fred's at Barneys New York, Chicago, and Best Large Business: The Peninsula Chicago.

Funds raised through World of Chocolate support AFC's work to end new HIV infections in Chicago and beyond.
