Ivy Tech Community College Northeast is hosting its fifth annual A Reason to Taste fundraiser this year. The theme centers around The Rome of France, giving guests a taste of Nimes, the French city with Italian heritage.
The dinner will be prepared by hospitality administration students and graduates who won the European Competition in January. Their prize was a trip to Europe to study the culinary arts. The students created the menu based upon their trip.
Tickets are available online at IvyTech.edu/reason or by contacting Kelli Brandenberger at email@example.com or 260-481-2243.
