McLean Chocolate Fest to Raise Community Funds

The McLean and Langley high school Interact Clubs and the Rotary Club of McLean are partnering to hold McLean’s third annual chocolate festival on Sunday, Jan. 26, from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. at the McLean Community Center.

The community hall will be filled with more than a dozen vendors selling anything chocolate: candy, cakes, ice cream, cupcakes, and more.

The admission fee is $2, which includes a $1 ticket toward the purchase of chocolate. Admission is free for children younger than 6 years.

Twenty-five percent of all proceeds will support local community organizations like the Falls Church-McLean Children’s Center, Homestretch, Literacy Council, Timber Lane Elementary School, high school senior scholarships, and the Safe Community Coalition’s Sixth-Grade Ethics Days. Down the hall from the vendors, Interact Club students will lead children in chocolate-related games while their parents watch.
