Save the Date for March 22 Restaurant Gala

November 29, 2011

The 29th annual Atlantic Cape Community College Restaurant Gala will take place on Thursday, March 22, at Bally’s Atlantic City Hotel and Casino. With the theme, “Dine like Royalty,” the Gala promises to be the region's crowning event in 2012, featuring lavish décor, trumpeters and a sumptuous feast.

The annual black-tie fundraiser celebrates food by highlighting hors d’oeuvres prepared by students in the Academy of Culinary Arts and showcasing the specialties of 40 of the area’s best restaurants at a progressive dining experience. Each year hundreds of people attend the Gala, which also includes live music and an elegant dessert reception.

The event has raised more than $2.5 million for scholarships since 1984. All Gala proceeds benefit student scholarships at the Academy of Culinary Arts at Atlantic Cape Community College and Atlantic Cape Foundation operations. The Academy is celebrating 30 years of culinary achievement with a series of events throughout the year. Learn more at http://www.atlantic.edu/aca/anniversary.htm.
