Tropicana Atlantic City Announces Return of Taste of the Quarter August 19

Tickets are now on sale for the 12th Annual Taste of the Quarter Benefiting United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (July 15, 2019) –Tropicana Atlantic City is pleased to announce the return of Taste of the Quarter Monday, August 19 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. All proceeds will benefit the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey (UWGPSNJ).

The signature event brings together the flavors of Tropicana’s culinary scene with city officials, local dignitaries and famous media personalities serving as “Celebrity Chefs.” The “Celebrity Chefs” will spend the evening dishing out the samples provided by over 25 of Tropicana’s participating bars, restaurants and eateries at various stations centrally located in the Quarter.

“Each year we look forward to the Taste of the Quarter and the camaraderie it brings amongst the community and those in attendance,” said Jason Gregorec, General Manager of Tropicana Atlantic City. “The evening provides much more than an opportunity to showcase our dining venues, but a chance to offer support to the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, an organization that does wonderful work right in our backyard.”

“Our United Way is on a mission to end poverty, especially the kind that can trap families for generations – and that’s a significant undertaking that we simply can’t accomplish on our own,” said Bill Golderer, President and CEO of United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey. “Tropicana’s Taste of the Quarter is the perfect example of our community taking action to show that each of us have a role to play in creating opportunities for everyone to thrive, and demonstrating that we can – and will – always do more when we come together. Thanks to the Tropicana management, restaurant staff, celebrity chefs, attendees and the community as whole, we are equipping more young people in our region to succeed and empowering more families to be self-reliant for a thriving Atlantic County – and region.”
