Hyde Park, NY – The
senior class of The Culinary Institute of America presents Cheers to the Beers
at the college’s campus in Hyde Park, NY
on Saturday, November 14, beginning at 6 p.m. The evening is a benefit supporting
Mid-Hudson and CIA student scholarships.
Cheers to the Beers will
include a cocktail hour and silent auction followed by a four-course meal
complete with beer pairings. During the dinner, guest speaker Adam Dulye, a 1997 CIA graduate and executive chef of the
Brewers Association, will talk about the pairing of craft beer and fine cuisine.
A guitarist and violinist will provide live music throughout the evening.

For this capstone project of their Foodservice Management

to the Beers through planning and execution. Putting together everything they
have learned in their four years of education at the CIA, the students are working
in finance, marketing, food, and service teams to create a memorable evening
for two good causes.
