You’re invited to an evening of unique culinary tastings and decadent desserts from more than 20 acclaimed chefs and restaurants, complemented by an assortment of fine spirits, live entertainment, auctions and more at the sixth annual Captain’s Table event on February 27, 2020, 6-9 PM, during the Progressive Insurance Atlantic City Boat Show at the Atlantic City Convention Center.
The Captain’s Table event is hosted by Let Us Eat Please, Inc. and the Community FoodBank of New Jersey Southern Branch to help raise awareness and financial support for the summer feeding program that provides groceries to local families whose children receive free or reduced-price meals during the school year. More than 25,000 children in Atlantic County meet the federal criteria. The summer feeding program serves nine school districts, providing 30 lbs. of groceries to each eligible family every two weeks.
“One in seven children in New Jersey face hunger every day,” noted Renate Taylor of the Community Food Bank, “and when they don’t have enough to eat their physical and mental development suffer.”
Some of the children who have benefited from the summer feeding program are giving back by creating items to be sold at the event with all proceeds being donated for the cause.
Tickets are $125 per person and are available online here.
“One of the great things about this event is that the price of the ticket also includes admission any time that day to the Boat Show that features luxury motor and sailing yachts, sport fishers, performance boats and watercrafts. We encourage everyone to come early to take advantage of all that is available while supporting a great cause,” said Ken Calemmo, President of Let Us Eat Please, Inc.
