The College of Staten Island Alumni Association presents the Fourth Annual Savor the Flavors tasting event on Sunday, April 7 in the Center for the Arts (Building 1P) Atrium from 2:00pm to 4:00pm. This year’s Event Chair is James McBratney, CSI Alumni Board Member and President, Staten Island Restaurant and Tavern Association.
Once again, dozens of Staten Island restaurants will come together to raise much-needed money for scholarships while showcasing the diverse cuisine that our Borough has to offer. Over the past three years, 36 scholarships have been awarded through the CSI Alumni Legacy Scholarship from money raised from past Savor the Flavor events. As Staten Island’s only public institution of higher education, many of the College’s 14,000 students present a great need for financial aid and the Alumni Association created this scholarship to help them.
Each participating restaurant will bring their signature dish and demonstrate how it is prepared. Celebrity judges Rob Burmeister, Eddie Canlon, and John Sierp from Food Network’s Chopped will be on hand to award winners for Best Dish and Best Dessert, while attendees can help decide the People’s Choice Award winner. Wine and beer tasting will also be available, as well as raffles and music.
