Fundraising dinner for Stone Soup CLE to be held at Hospitality Management Center
Culinary students from Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) will hold a fundraising dinner in February to benefit Stone Soup CLE, a nonprofit food rescue service dedicated to helping the hungry.
The Lunar New Year Celebration will be held 6-9 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 2, at the College’s Hospitality Management Center on Public Square. Guests will enjoy an extravagant Chinese cuisine buffet served from stations around the center.
Tickets are $30 and can be purchased by visiting www.tri-c.edu/StoneSoupCLE. The cost includes a cocktail, entertainment by the Cleveland Chinese Music Ensemble and parking at the nearby Cleveland Public Square Garage on Ontario Street.
Wine tasting tickets will be available for purchase, and there will be a cash bar offering beer and wine selections. The event will also include a reverse auction featuring works from local artists.
Proceeds will benefit Stone Soup CLE, which stocks local soup kitchens with excess food from restaurants, grocery stores and vendors. The organization has “rescued” 18 tons of food since forming in 2015.
A Tri-C culinary instructor, Chef Giovanna Mingrone, founded Stone Soup CLE and oversees the organization. Visit www.facebook.com/stonesoupcle for more information on the organization.
Tri-C’s Hospitality Management Center is located at 180 Euclid Ave. on Cleveland’s Public Square.
