Restaurant Gala Tickets on Sale

February 4, 2010

Tickets are now on sale for South Jersey's premier black-tie fundraising event. The 27th Annual Atlantic Cape Community College Restaurant Gala begins at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, March 11, at Bally's Atlantic City Hotel and Casino. With the theme "A Mo'Rockin Night," the Gala will feature a lively, Moroccan atmosphere.

The annual event celebrates food by serving thousands of hors d'oeuvres prepared by students from the Academy of Culinary Arts and showcasing the house specialties of 40 of the area's best restaurants at a progressive dining experience. An elegant "Dessert Extravaganza" headed by Executive Pastry Chef Eugen Ess of Trump Taj Mahal, will complete the night's events.

The event has raised more than $2 million since 1984 for student scholarships at the Academy of Culinary Arts at Atlantic Cape.

Tickets are $200 per person and can be ordered by calling (609) 463-4672 or online at www.atlantic.edu/gala.
