The Wilmington Wine and Chocolate Festival is the primary fundraiser for VOCAL (Volunteer Older Citizen's Action League). The festival features music, comedy, children's activities, culinary demonstrations and best of all, wine and chocolate. All of this takes place at the Coast Line Event Center in downtown Wilmington. One of the festival organizers, Marianna Stacy, stopped by WHQR studios with comedian Basile to tell us more about this event.
