            ANDERSON --- Tri-County Technical College will host its second-annual wine tasting fundraiser event Thursday, October 18, at its Anderson Campus.  This signature event will benefit a Culinary Arts certificate program set to begin in the fall of 2013.

            The event, set for 7 - 9 p.m., will be catered by the Lake Keowee chapter of Les Marmitons, an international culinary club that gathers monthly in the culinary lab of the Anderson Campus.  They will prepare gourmet hors d'oeuvres served with wine pairings.  "This will be a learning event as well as a social gathering," said Courtney White, manager of donor relations for the College's Foundation, which is hosting the event.

            South Carolina Bank and Trust of Anderson is the premier sponsor of the event.

            Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about wine selections and food pairings while enjoying a relaxing evening of fun and fellowship.  Also, they can tour the Anderson Campus where, beginning next fall, the one-year Culinary Arts certificate program will be offered through the College's Business and Public Services Division.  The program will focus on food preparation and serving, as well as the business side of managing a restaurant or owning a catering business.

            Tickets for the wine tasting fundraiser are $50 per person and $100 per couple. Tickets are available at Kitchen Emporium in Anderson and Wine Emporium in Salem or by contacting Courtney White at 646-1484 or by e-mail at cwhite12@tctc.edu.

            For more information about the new Culinary Arts program, contact Meg Allan at 646-1887.
