Shucks for a Good Cause

Chef Charlie Palmer ’79, restaurateur and chairman of the board of trustees of the CIA, hosted his 2nd Annual Oyster Social at his famed New York City restaurant, Aureole.Chef Charlie Palmer ’79, restaurateur and chairman of the board of trustees of the CIA, hosted his 2nd Annual Oyster Social at his famed New York City restaurant, Aureole this fall. The event included an oyster shucking showdown involving teams of CIA students, with attendees sponsoring each team based on the number of oysters they could shuck within the three-minute time limit.

 

Proceeds from the evening benefited Citymeals-on-Wheels, with the shucking competition alone raising $1,935 for the charity.

Chef Palmer and his staff at Aureole appreciated the fact that the CIA students volunteered their time to support this worthy cause. As a bonus, the students had a chance to network with leaders in the New York City restaurant scene who can help them in their careers once they graduate!
