Have you heard about it? Taste the Future is a culinary showcase fundraiser in its 22nd year. It will be held Tuesday evening, September 14. It started in 1988 as a way to highlight our Columbus State Hospitality Management alumni and raise scholarship funds.
Each year more than 50 of Central Ohio's best chefs and establishments gather to serve our guests their finest gourmet morsels.
The goal of the event is to raise money for Columbus State scholarships and special projects, show our beautiful campus off to the community, and raise the profile of the best chefs in Columbus. Interested in getting involved? Consider:
• Volunteering for Taste the Future: It’s hard work, but rewarding and fun! Join the dozens of other employees who have already signed up to help. Click here for information about volunteer training and assignment options.
• Attending Taste the Future: Ask around, it really is the tastiest ticket in town! Tickets are $100 and can be purchased at www.tastethefuture.com or in the Development Foundation office in Franklin Hall 252.
