Guests experienced the tastes of Southern France, while toasting to student success at Ivy Tech!
After a seven-year hiatus, Ivy Tech Community College-Northeast reinstated its popular fundraising dinner for scholarships through "A Reason to Taste: Southern France" on Oct. 20, 2012.
The Student Life Center Gymnasium was transformed into a grape-harvest celebration, where patrons enjoyed a six-course dinner. Guests were welcomed with a glass of Champagne and hors d'oeuvres that paid homage to the occasion. Roasted duck breast with chocolate port-wine reduction was the main course, and four wine pairings complemented the meal.
Faculty and students from the college's Culinary Arts and Baking and Pastry Arts programs prepared the haute cuisine, while numerous faculty, staff and students from various academic programs and offices acted as multiple-hat-wearing volunteers. See event photos.
