Eat for a great cause
Tropicana Atlantic City General Manager Steve Callender called Taste of the Quarter an amazing food festival:
“Taste of the Quarter at Tropicana Atlantic City has grown year after year to become an amazing food festival where guests can try the many food and drink offerings on property for a good cause. We’re proud to partner with United Way, our celebrity chefs, and the participating dining venues for an eleventh year.”
United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey President and CEO Bill Golderer said it’s more than just a great chance to taste Tropicana:
“Taste of the Quarter is so much more than an opportunity to experience the best flavors of Atlantic City – it’s one demonstration of how our community members are committed to coming together to lift up our region. When we join forces to fight for change, United Way is positioned to drive greater impact and break the cycle of poverty. We’re incredibly grateful to the dedicated community partners like Tropicana and the establishments in The Quarter for helping to make our work possible.”
Participating partners can be found in Tropicana’s North and South Towers, The Quarter, and The Marketplace.
