Good Eats for a Good Cause! Monday’s Taste of the Quarter Benefits United Way
Here's your invitation to join me and Lite Rock 96.9 WFPG from 6-9pm Monday, Aug. 24th for "Taste of the Quarter" at the Tropicana Atlantic City.
Over twenty restaurants, bars and eateries will feature a special taste of their menu for this signature event benefiting United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey in Atlantic County.
This year, I will be one of the celebrity chefs for "Taste". Don't worry, I won't actually be making the food, just serving it!
Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 the day of the event. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the Taste of the Quarter benefit United Way in Atlantic County.
Tickets can be purchased at the IMAX Box Office, located on the third floor of The Quarter, Ticketmaster.com, via phone at 1.800.745.3000 or the United Way Atlantic County office in Galloway.
