From fudge, to cake, to chocolate fountains, the 3rd Annual "Death by Chocolate" had it all for those chocolate lovers.

People got to sample all different types of chocolate desserts for a good cause, Friday evening.

The event supports the Healing Place in Huntington, which is an alcohol and drug abuse recovery center for men. Organizers say the event keeps getting bigger and bigger each year, which is a win-win situation for everyone.

"They have a great time but they associate it with the healing place and what we are achieving. It will help them realize they can have fun while supporting a great cause," said Rebecca Stanley, who is the marketing director at The Healing Place.

The group raised about $7,500 for the Healing Place.
