Join Chef Chris Scarduzio at Table 31 in Philadelphia on Sunday, December 16, 2012, from 6PM-11PM, for Savor for Sandy, a special event to raise money for Caesars Entertainment Atlantic City employees affected by Hurricane Sandy. All of the event’s proceeds go directly to the Wish Upon a Hero Foundation.
Created in partnership with Caesars Entertainment Atlantic City Chefs and The Star Group, Savor for Sandy will highlight the culinary creations of Chris Scarduzio as well as several of Atlantic City’s best chefs, including Anthony Amoroso, Giancarlo Generosi, Paul Hanley, Keith Mitchell, Joseph Muldoon, Robert Schoell, Scott Simon, John Whelan, and David Utley.
“I jumped at the opportunity to give back to the community and to help those who are in dire need by offering to host Savor for Sandy,” said Scarduzio, executive chef and proprietor at Table 31. “I know people from Philly and South Jersey will rally around this cause and bring their appetite to support their coastal neighbors, all while enjoying a wonderful night of great food and company.”
Tickets for Savor for Sandy begin at $100 for general admission. Additional sponsorship packages are available that include access to Table 31’s Patron VIP Lounge, hotel packages at Caesars Atlantic City and dining to Mia, also in Atlantic City. Learn more and purchase tickets today!
By utilizing the Wish Upon a Hero Foundation, funds raised at Savor for Sandy will help Caesars Entertainment Atlantic City employees recover from the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy. In the days leading up to Savor for Sandy, Wish Upon a Hero will collect specific “wishes” from Caesars employees that consist of items they need replaced most. Then, proceeds from Savor for Sandy will be used to make approved wishes come true by giving families up to $1,000 per household.
“We are honored to have a partner like Chris Scarduzio; his passion for the Jersey Shore and commitment to the surrounding communities of Atlantic City is as genuine as the food in his restaurants,” said Don Marrandino, Eastern Division President for Caesars Entertainment Atlantic City. “On December 16, celebrities and renowned culinary talent will all come together in Philadelphia for a humbling evening of fundraising which will go a long way to helping raise much needed funds for Caesars Entertainment employees still dealing with Sandy’s aftermath.”
