'Night for Nate' Feb. 27 to Benefit ACA Scholarship
February 22, 2010
The Nate Allen Memorial Benefit on Feb. 27 will raise funds for a scholarship to the Academy of Culinary Arts at Atlantic Cape Community College in Allen's name. Allen, a Cape May County resident who graduated from the Academy in 2003, died in a car accident in February 2006 at age 22.
Allen loved nature, adventure, sports and cooking. "When he was not off on a snowboarding trip, going on a spontaneous road trip, playing or practicing golf, he could be found whipping up a nice meal for his friends," said his sister, Alyssa Jones.
He was a 2001 graduate of Middle Township High School and worked at the former Ocean Drive Seafood and Oyster Bay in Cape May.
The "Night for Nate" benefit begins at 5 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 27, at the Avalon Golf Club. Tickets are $25. Proceeds will benefit the scholarship fund, and this year a portion will also go to Macey Tilsner to aid in her battle against leukemia.
