HAMPDEN - What's better than chocolate, music, and helping kids?

Hampden Academy hosted a fund raiser chocolate festival to raise money to send four of the schools music group to Disney World in April, to perform in a competition called "Festival Disney."

 

They have over 80 students going and they want to make sure everybody can go.

 

President of Hampden Academy music association Joe Babbitt said  "Oh it's fantastic i mean it's an easy thing to do it's a fun community event, and this Disney trip is something that the program does every four years, and they've done it for years. So kids who come through the school system here in the music program are already looking forward to this when they're in third and fourth grade."

 

They have over 18 vendor tables from various different businesses with all the chocolate you can eat.

 

Their goal is to raise 15 thousand dollars.
