Tickets on Sale for 50/50 Raffle to Benefit ACCC Scholarships

February 29, 2008

Three lucky winners will share up to $25,000 in this year's Press of Atlantic City Restaurant Gala 50/50 Raffle. The raffle is sponsored by the Atlantic Cape Community College Foundation, and proceeds benefit student scholarships at ACCC.

Only 500 tickets will be sold at $100 each. Three cash prizes will be awarded, including: $15,000, first prize; $7,500, second prize; and $2,500, third prize. Dollar amounts are based on all 500 tickets being sold. The winning tickets will be drawn at the April 3 Gala at the Atlantic City Convention Center. Winners do not need to be present to win.

Tickets are also on sale for the 25th Anniversary Restaurant Gala. The annual event celebrates food by featuring 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. Live music by the Melanie Rice Orchestra and an elegant dessert reception will complete the night's events. The event, which is presented by Commerce Bank, has raised nearly $1.7 million for student scholarships at the Academy since 1984. Tickets to the Gala cost $200 per person.
