Join Us In Support of the Chocolate Festival

Released: 01/23/2023  

The Mobile Chocolate Festival is the largest annual fundraiser for Penelope House, Inc. It is organized by a Penelope House Board committee, who volunteer their time all year to prepare for the event. The committee runs the Festival along with other board members, volunteers, and Penelope House staff. 

Carlisle Medical has been named the Moon Pie Sponsor for the Mobile Chocolate Festival on March 18, 2023. The location will be 1035 Cody Road, also known as Mobile Fair Grounds. 

All proceeds from the Festival go to support the mission of Penelope House. The mission of Penelope House is to provide safety, protection, and support to the victims of Domestic Violence and their children through shelter, advocacy, and individual and community education. If you are not local to the area but need assistance, you can reach out to Penelope House at (800) 650-6522 and the local Penelope House’s 24-hour crisis line at (251) 342-8994.

Penelope House helps victims of intimate partner violence to gain social and economic independence through shelter, counseling, advocacy, and referral to community resources and agencies in Mobile, Washington, Choctaw, and Clarke Counties in Alabama. The shelter can provide refuge for victims and their children when their lives are in imminent danger. The temporary shelter allows escape from a violent situation. The prevention of domestic Violence through education and public awareness is the goal of Penelope House.
