TRAVERSE CITY — Tickets are now on sale for the April 6 Taste of Success, the premier annual fundraiser for students at NMC’s Great Lakes Culinary Institute.
Patrons will enjoy a strolling dinner of international cuisine prepared and served by culinary students along with local wine, craft beer, and spirits. A Taste of Success also includes a silent auction with unique events and items, offering another opportunity to support student scholarships.
The 2017 event raised more than $89,000 for student scholarships. GLCI Director Fred Laughlin said the funds raised by the event, first held at the Park Place Hotel in 1994, are vital to many students.
“The event goes a long way to showcase the talent of our students and providing them with needed funds to continue their education,” he said.
The Great Lakes Culinary Institute at Northwestern Michigan College is designed to provide rigorous and concentrated study for students planning careers in the rapidly growing food service industry. The program’s main emphasis is to prepare students for entry-level chef and kitchen-management positions. It is accredited by the American Culinary Federation, one of fewer than 200 U.S. colleges to receive that distinction. Students are eligible to become ACF Certified Culinarians upon graduation.
Tickets are $100 each. Table sponsorships are also available. Call (231) 995-2021 or buy online at nmc.edu/taste-of-success.
