The Hospitality Club will prepare and serve a traditional Southern Louisiana lunch of Jambalaya, Gumbo, Pina Colada Bread Pudding. There will be music and raffles.
The Hospitality Department and Hospitality Club are organizing this fundraising event to offset the cost of a week- long class, “A Taste of America,” being offered in New Orleans in June. The students will also be volunteering their time in the French Quarter at Covenant House, an organization benefiting homeless teenagers and adults. In addition to raising funds to make the course more affordable, the students also plan to make a financial contribution to Covenant House.
Rockland Community College, a unit of the State University of New York, is located 25 miles northwest of NYC. The majority of its students transfer to four-year colleges, and many find immediate employment upon earning their associate’s degree or certificate. The College also offers others, from preschoolers to senior citizens, the opportunity to simply learn something new. Quality education...at a price you can afford.
