Support the Restaurant Gala

Atlantic Cape Community College’s Annual Restaurant Gala, a cherished tradition for 37 years, will regrettably not be held this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The annual Restaurant Gala will return on March 11, 2021.

Since its inception, the Atlantic Cape Restaurant Gala has raised well over $3.5 million for scholarships for students attending the Academy of Culinary Arts through the generous support of our community partners and corporate sponsors. 

Although the Restaurant Gala will not be held this year, there are still ways to support students at Atlantic Cape and the Academy of Culinary Arts. We are grateful for the community's continued support, especially during these uncertain and challenging times. Please consider making a contribution toward scholarships or purchasing raffle tickets which support our student emergency fund!
