Grand Traverse Tasters' Guild Tasting Event & Auction
This unique event at NMC's Great Lakes Campus features a fabulous strolling dinner of international cuisine served at numerous tasting tables. All cuisine is prepared by Great Lakes Culinary Institute students, and features local and select regional and international wines. All proceeds from the event are designated for scholarship funds supporting numerous GLCI students each year! Bon Appetit!
Throughout the evening, guests bid on a number of tantalizing silent auction items, purchased raffle tickets for a chance to win amazing gift baskets and packages, supported GLCI scholarships with ‘By the Glass’ opportunities and bought tickets for the hilarious ‘Heads or Tails’ game — with the winner receiving a wonderful dinner for four people, with craft cocktails, at Georgina’s.
Even those who didn’t attend the 2015 event were still able to support the Great Lakes Culinary Institute via an online auction that ran through Monday, March 2. The prizes included:
- A private party for 24 at Lobdell’s during the 89th National Cherry Festival fireworks »
- Dinner for eight at Towne Plaza Restaurant »
- Search high and low, with an ROV (Remotely Operated Underwater Vehicle) trip and seaplane lesson over Grand Traverse Bay »
