SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The 7th annual "Chefs and Chocolates" event happening at the Charles Morris Center was held Friday night.

Ticket holders enjoyed delicious treats and took part in a silent auction. Donated items up for bid included two nights at the Savannah Westin and a round of golf for four at May River Golf Club.

All proceeds going toward Urban Hope, an after-school program for local at-risk youth.

"We have a lot of kids that need a lot of extra help with education, with spiritual growth and that's where Urban Hope comes in. We're a loving environment for children who really need us and it’s great for the community. It impacts the community as a whole,” said Cassie Beckwith, an Urban Hope board member.

Our very own Cyreia Sandlin was tonight's emcee. You can catch more "Chefs and Chocolates" during our Good News segment next week.
