AUSTIN -- The second annual All Chocolate Affair featured live performances, culinary demonstrations, and of course delicious chocolate.

The proceeds from the All Chocolate Affair benefit Broadcast Your Love, a nonprofit created by friends and family of the late KVUE broadcast journalist Thea Williams-Douglas, who passed away from breast cancer.

The charity event kicked off with a choir and featured live culinary demonstrations from Hyatt executive chef Paul French. Also showcased were savory treats created by chef Rob McDonald and Travis High School culinary students. Students, like Donna Cruz, say this program helps students stay out of trouble and teaches them to help others.

"Keeps you away from a lot of things," Cruz said. "It's a career I'm making for myself. I'm going to go to college for culinary arts and hopefully one day start my own business."

Feeling Write, one of BYL's programs, works with the Boys and Girls Club of America's Austin to develop healthy lifestyles using communication skills.

"We are honored to be partnering with Broadcast Your Love, because we share the same goals -- make a difference in the lives of young people."
