The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa Donates $15,000 to Restaurant Gala for Scholarships

April 2, 2014

The Atlantic Cape Community College Foundation accepted a $15,000 gift from The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s Heart and Soul Foundation March 27. The donation was made in support of Atlantic Cape’s 31st Annual Restaurant Gala to create scholarships for students attending the college’s Academy of Culinary Arts.

The Borgata is a major sponsor of the Restaurant Gala, donating $120,000 since 2007, to create dozens of scholarships for students at Atlantic Cape’s Academy of Culinary Arts.

“The Borgata is proud to continue its partnership with Atlantic Cape and sponsorship of the Restaurant Gala. Our relationship with the college is mutually beneficial as we help provide scholarships to the culinary students, they hone their craft and become some of our most outstanding employees,” said Auggie Cipollini, senior vice president of operations and chief administration officer of The Borgata.

“We are grateful for The Borgata’s long-standing support and look forward to working together in the future,” added Dr. Peter L. Mora, Atlantic Cape president.
