The Chocolate Lovers’ Fling

The Chocolate Lovers’ Fling is our biggest event of the year–not to mention the best party in town! The Fling will be held on February 10th, 2018.



At the Chocolate Lovers’ Fling you can eat delectable chocolate from amateur and professional chefs, dance, bid at the silent auction,  participate in our cash raffle and support a great cause, all at the same time. There are cash prizes for the best dressed and good karma for all!

Eliminating domestic violence and sexual assault is our mission.  Serving the victims of San Miguel County is our passion.  Fundraising is our means of making it all happen. A great way to support SMRC is to become a Special Contributor.

Numbers are growing in San Miguel County. By September 2017, the San Miguel Resource Center:

  • Served 196 clients in San Miguel County and the West End of Montrose County;
  • Safehoused 12 adults and 8 children for a total of 95 nights;
  • Hosted 270 youth-targeted domestic violence presentations;
  • Contacted 1,352 people by phone.

To provide the above services, we rely on Special Contributors like you. One-third of our operating budget comes from donors in addition to the proceeds from the Chocolate Lovers’ Fling, our annual fundraiser.  On February 10th, 2018, we celebrate the Flings’ 25th year with the theme “Studio 54”.

Please join our efforts toward eliminating domestic violence and sexual assault in our community. We thank you for being a part of our mission!
