Save the Date for 2011 Restaurant Gala

January 6, 2011

The 28th annual Atlantic Cape Community College Restaurant Gala will “Put on the Glitz,” Thursday, March 31, at Bally’s Atlantic City Hotel and Casino. The award-winning dining extravaganza will feature a Roaring Twenties theme, reminiscent of the Prohibition era of flappers, silent film and Art Deco style.

The annual black-tie event celebrates food by highlighting hors d’oeuvres prepared by students at 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 million for scholarships since 1984. Gala proceeds benefit student scholarships at the Academy of Culinary Arts at Atlantic Cape Community College.
