The SAIL Disability Network held their 11th annual Chocolate Festival Sunday afternoon in Marquette.

Twelve different chocolatiers, bakeries, and restaurants filled the Northern Center with plenty of delicious treats. For just a $15 ticket, those in attendance were able to try something from every vendor.

The family friendly festival gives those in attendance something sweet to eat, while helping SAIL cover the cost of programming.

“We're hoping to get over the $10,000 mark,” said SAIL executive director Sarah Peurakoski. “The money goes to four different programs, our assistive technology, UP Vets Served, SPAR, and our Sled Cats sled hockey team.”

The vendors donated their time and items for free to the festival, and the event sold out, with all 500 advance tickets purchased.
