NCC Food & Wine Gala

This year’s NCC Food & Wine Gala will feature celebrated chef, Emmy award-winning public television host, a best-selling cookbook author, and restaurateur, Lidia Bastianich.

We hope you'll join us on Friday, June 2, 2023 at 6PM. The event will take place in the beautifully designed new ballroom at Wind Creek Bethlehem and will feature a reception and a four-course Lidia inspired menu, fine wines, and open bar for sponsors and guests. The evening will also include an auction of vintage collectable wines, unique experiences and opportunities to support NCC. Dress is cocktail attire.

This event provides much-needed scholarship support and hands-on experience for our culinary and hospitality students. Our strength comes from so many, including our festival sponsors whose commitment to the college continues to transform lives, provide affordable access to a top-quality education, and life-changing opportunities.
