Experience A Taste of Success April 12, 2019! Sip. Savor. Support.

A Taste of Success: Sip. Savor. Support.


This year’s A Taste of Success event (originally scheduled for April 17, 2020) was canceled. Northwestern Michigan College and the NMC Foundation must follow the guidelines set forth by state health officials, which include canceling all gatherings and events that would convene more than 50 people.

As a courtesy to all guests and sponsors who already paid to participate in the event, the NMC Foundation is offering refunds or the opportunity to direct funds (as a 100% charitable gift) to the Taste of Success scholarship, which supports culinary students at NMC. Please call the NMC Foundation at (231) 995-1021 to receive a refund or make a gift.

Thank you to our many sponsors who have chosen to support the Taste of Success scholarship in the absence of the event!

A Taste of Success: Sip. Savor. Support.

Meet the great chefs of tomorrow! Join us for a fabulous strolling dinner of international cuisine with local wine, craft beers, and more. At this unique event at NMC's Great Lakes Campus all of the food is prepared by Great Lakes Culinary Institute students and served at numerous tasting tables.

Be part of making culinary education possible for students—all proceeds from the event benefit student scholarships. Last year thanks to the support of people like you, this event raised more than $115,000 for student scholarships.
