Ivy Tech Community College’s Fort Wayne campus will host their annual A Reason to Taste fundraiser in September. This year’s theme is Culinary Crossroads of America, a food lover’s road-trip featuring a culinary adventure spanning American cuisine from the Pacific Northwest to New England—with several memorable side trips along the way.
The six food exhibits, paired with bourbon samples, will be prepared by Hospitality Administration students and graduates who won the European Competition in 2021. Menu items include smoked lobster tail, BBQ spiced beef tenderloin, wild mushroom tarts, mini Chicago dogs, beignets, and more!
Tickets are $100 each and are available online at IvyTech.edu/reason. Proceeds will fund scholarships and programs for students at Ivy Tech Fort Wayne.
ProFed Credit Union is the event’s presenting sponsor; Fort Wayne Metals, Star Bank, Plumbers, Steamfitters & HVACR Service Technicians Local 166, and Steel Dynamics, Inc. are table sponsors for the night; and Sweetwater Sound is the entertainment sponsor. Sponsorships for the event are still available. Anyone interested should contact Tracina Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org.
