ChocolateFest helps raise money for childhood cancer research

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- East Tennesseans got the opportunity to eat delicious sweets on Saturday, all to help a good cause.

The ChocolateFest returned to Knoxville in hopes of raising $100,000 for the Butterfly Fund.

After two families lost their daughters to rare childhood cancer, they decided to continue their legacy.

"We started the Butterfly Fund and we raise money for East Tennessee Children's Hospital, as well as, pediatric cancer research initiatives," said co-founder Christina Harrill.

Plans are already in the works for next year, including a bigger venue and more vendors.
