Chefs Pair with HACC Culinary Arts Students for Milestone Gala

Black-tie event on March 24, 2017, will recognize 50 years of alumni and raise funds to support the students of the next 50 years


HARRISBURG, Pa. A black-tie gala featuring alumni chefs, chef mentors and current culinary and pastry arts students will celebrate a milestone for the Hospitality Education Programs at HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College.
 
The public is invited to join the 50th anniversary celebration at Hilton Harrisburg on March 24, 2017, from 6-9:30 p.m. Proceeds will benefit HACC’s Culinary Arts Outstanding Student Scholarship and HACC’s Hospitality and Tourism Outstanding Student Scholarship. Contributions to the HACC Foundation in support of these scholarships are tax-deductible.
 
“We’re planning an exciting evening that includes a six-course dinner prepared by guest mentor and alumni chefs paired with current HACC students,” said Chef Autumn Patti, program director, HACC’s Culinary Arts and Baking and Pastry Arts Programs. “Each course features American regional dishes inspired by the chef’s culinary journey.”
 
Chef Patti added, “This event brings together over a dozen other HACC programs to create an exceptional evening to benefit the future education of the hospitality industry.”
 
The featured chefs include eight HACC alumni – seven from HACC’s Benjamin Olewine III Center for the Study of Culinary Arts and Baking and Pastry Arts Program – and two chefs who work closely with HACC to support and mentor culinary arts students.
 
The evening also will include a cocktail reception, champagne toast, several wine pairings, a silent auction and guest speakers sharing the history and impact of the last 50 years of HACC’s Hospitality Education Programs.
