Join us for the 35th Annual Restaurant Gala

The Atlantic Cape Foundation invites you to join us at the beautiful Harrah's Waterfront Conference Center in Atlantic City on Wednesday, March 28, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. for the Atlantic Cape Community College Restaurant Gala - South Jersey’s annual premier food and beverage event.  This year's theme, Culinary Magic, is sure to amaze event attendees as we celebrate the captivating power of culinary creations. 

The black tie event will begin at 6:00 p.m. with a cocktail reception featuring hors d’oeuvres prepared by students from the Academy of Culinary Arts.  A few "magical" surprises are in store to astonish and entertain guests of the Gala.  At 7:30 p.m., doors to the Avalon Ballroom will open and guests will feast on original dishes from 40 of the area’s best restaurants. An elegant dessert reception and live entertainment will complete the evening’s festivities.

The Restaurant Gala is the college’s key fundraising event with proceeds funding scholarships for students attending the Academy of Culinary Arts (ACA). Since its inception, the Gala has raised more than $3 million for scholarships through the support of the community and corporate sponsors.  It is because of this support that our Foundation has provided scholarship support for over 200 students.

Join the celebration and help ensure our future service as the “community’s college!”
