Executive Director Annamarie Gutsch says they've been in business in Duluth for 60 years serving both individuals and families.

One program advocates for parents with school age children who are going through the special education system.

"We have individuals who help support those parents while their waiting through the difficulties of the IEP's or 504's..." she said.

Their housing program helps people with disabilities find an appropriate place to live.

The 'Arrowhead Regional Quality Council' program assesses individuals on how their needs are being met as their receiving needs from the county and the state. This specific initiative has a a requirement that these assessments are reported to Minnesota lawmakers.

This year's fundraiser will involve 15 different local chefs whipping up all kinds of delectable treats. This includes chicken chocolate tacos, flourless chocolate cake, and chocolate bruschetta. Gutsch personally taste-tested chocolate truffles made by Lyric Kitchen & Bar and said they were amazing!

In addition, attendees will be able to wash all of it down with a chocolate stout beer from Canal Park Brewing.
