    Whisked Away: A Columbus NACE Culinary Experience



    Thrill some friends or colleagues and join Columbus NACE to get “Whisked Away”

    Our local Chapter of the National Association for Catering and Events, Columbus NACE, is a not for profit organization devoted to the career advancement and education for Hospitality and Event Professionals. This year we are celebrating the 11th Annual Fundraiser on Wednesday, November 13th in the newly constructed and astonishing Mitchell Hall Event Center at Columbus State Community College. Our reinvigorated theme “Whisked Away: A Columbus NACE Culinary Experience” is an opportunity encounter a fusion of flavors and bid on live auction culinary experiences from around Columbus. Grab your passport, adventure awaits!

    Come see for yourself, the brand new, state-of-the-art facility. Mitchell Hall features 11 teaching kitchens and labs, as well as a full-service restaurant for students to practice their culinary skills. The venue offers over 12,000 sq. ft. of flexible event space in the incredible 80,000-square-foot facility. The spacious Event Center accommodates up to 400 guests for dinner with a panoramic view of downtown Columbus, and the facility offers complimentary wireless internet and parking. The building also boasts a bakery, culinary theater and more.

    With much appreciation to our fabulous donors, the 2018 event raised more than $10,000; this year our goal is $13,000 and we can’t make that happen without you. Funds from the campaign will be used to provide multiple educational scholarships for students enrolled in the Columbus State Hospitality Program, educational funding opportunities for Members through the hosting of National Speakers and Member scholarships to attend Evolve and Experience Conferences, as well as the ability to expand and enhance our existing Chapter programs.

    Mitchell Hall is expected to double the school’s enrollment capacity to 1,500 culinary students, allowing even more budding chefs and restaurateurs to pursue their dreams.

    We can wait to have you join in the excitement!
