Restaurant Gala

PLEASE NOTE: The 37th Annual Atlantic Cape Restaurant Gala has been postponed as part of the effort to slow down the rate of transmission of the COVID-19 coronavirus.

The 37th Annual Atlantic Cape Restaurant Gala will be held on Wednesday, May 27, 2020 and hosted by our Platinum Sponsor, Harrah's Resort Atlantic City at the beautiful Harrah's Waterfront Conference Center.  This year's event will honor the contributions of the 2020 Community Honorees, Stephen '72 and Dianne Nehmad '70 and celebrate the accomplishments of the 2020 Academy of Culinary Arts Honoree, Chef Bill McGinnity '85. Party with a purpose and help us raise funds for scholarships for students attending the Academy of Culinary Arts!

For more information about the 37th Annual Restaurant Gala, please contact Kristin Jackson at or (609) 463-3621.

Tickets to the Gala are $225 per person or a discounted rate of $2500 per table of 12 and can be purchased by contacting Kristin Jackson at (609) 463-3621 or or by visiting 

Since its inception, the Atlantic Cape Restaurant Gala has raised well over $3.5 million for scholarships through the generous support of our community partners and corporate sponsors. As a result of their continued generosity, last year's SOLD OUT event raised $234,475 and was attended by over 900 guests.
