It was a beautiful day for an event at Bissinger’s Caramel room with its wonderful terrace overlooking the river as the Great Rivers Environmental Law Center welcomed guests to Great Rivers at the Chocolate Factory. The laid-back event featured drinks and hors d’oeuvres along with heavy appetizers and — of course — chocolate. Accompanied by live music guests browsed some silent auction items while stopping by to get a photo from a photo booth. The event sought to raise funds for the nonprofit law firm to provide legal services to those seeking to preserve and protect the environment and public health.
