MAYS LANDING— The 41st Annual Atlantic Cape Community College Restaurant Gala, highly regarded as the premier food and beverage fundraising event in the Atlantic City area, will return to the Harrah’s Waterfront Conference Center on Thursday, March 21, 2024, 6-9:30 p.m.

This year’s theme, Springtime in Paris, will offer an airy and elegant touch to the elaborate soiree. Please mark your calendars and join us in celebrating the many accomplishments and generous contributions made by Community Honoree, Travis Lunn, President & COO of Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa and Academy of Culinary Arts Honoree, Chef Demetrios Haronis ‘90, Director of Culinary Operations at Tropicana Atlantic City. We are looking forward to honoring Mr. Lunn and Chef Haronis and recognizing their contributions.

The Restaurant Gala annually attracts 1,000 community and business leaders, government officials, food enthusiasts and friends of the college. This year’s event will begin at 6 p.m. with a lavish cocktail reception featuring hors d’oeuvres prepared by the students of the Academy of Culinary Arts. A formal dinner will follow at 7 p.m. in the Wildwood Ballroom complete with sample signature dishes, desserts and some of the finest libations from more than 50 South Jersey establishments. A 50/50 raffle drawing, open bar, photo booth and live musical entertainment will round out the evening’s festivities.

Since its inception in 1984, the Restaurant Gala has raised more than $4 million for scholarships benefiting students attending the Academy of Culinary Arts, a student emergency fund and Atlantic Cape Community College Foundation operations. We are grateful for every contribution that helps the ACA provide quality educational and training opportunities, and ensures the continued success of our students.
