Last Chance to Buy Advance Tickets for the March 24 Restaurant Gala; A Perfect Last Minute Stocking Stuffer

Time is running out to purchase the “advance ticket” special for those interested in attending South Jersey’s premier food and beverage event, the 33rd Atlantic Cape Community College Restaurant Gala, Thursday, March 24, in the Avalon Ballroom of Harrah’s Waterfront Conference Center. Individual tickets are available for $200 each, a $25 savings; and tables of 12 are $2,400, a $300 savings; and must be purchased by Dec. 31.

The annual event showcases food by serving thousands of hors d’oeuvres prepared by students from the Academy of Culinary Arts and featuring the culinary specialties of 40 of the region’s best restaurants at a progressive dining experience.

This year’s theme is “MISSION: POSSIBLE,” a play on the famous “MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE,” with a focus on making scholarships possible for Academy of Culinary Arts students through Gala proceeds.

The event has raised $3 million since 1984, with proceeds benefiting student scholarships at the Academy of Culinary Arts at Atlantic Cape Community College and Atlantic Cape Foundation operations.
