Experience A Taste of Success February 19, 2016! Sip. Savor. Support.

A Taste of Success: Sip. Savor. Support.

Formerly the Grand Traverse Tasters' Guild Event & Auction

On Friday, February 19, hundreds of Great Lakes Culinary Institute supporters joined us for a fabulous strolling dinner of international cuisine with local wine, craft beers, and more. All of the food at this unique event at NMC's Great Lakes Campus is prepared by Great Lakes Culinary Institute students and served at numerous tasting tables.

Throughout the evening, attendees had the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets for a chance to win amazing gift packages, to support GLCI scholarships, and to participate in other efforts to help the students.

Thank you for being part of making culinary education possible for students—all proceeds from the event benefit culinary student scholarships. This year, thanks to the support of people like you, this event raised $87,000 for scholarships!


When you sponsor A Taste of Success, you provide much-needed scholarship funds for deserving students to attend the Great Lakes Culinary Institute — a gift that lasts a lifetime.

Thank You To Our 2016 Sponsors!
