6 June 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Fun for the whole family, Tropicana Atlantic City Casino & Resort's 10th Annual Taste of the Quarter will take place Monday, 21 August 2017 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Over 25 restaurants, bars and eateries will feature a special taste of their menu for this signature event benefiting United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey (UWGPSNJ) in Atlantic County.

For one set ticket price, guests will eat their way through almost every restaurant and eatery at Tropicana in a lively festival atmosphere. City officials, local dignitaries and members of the media serve as "celebrity chefs," dishing out sample size portions at each food station while Cat Country Mornings with Joe and Rachel and Eddie Davis from Lite Rock 96.9 WFPG will emcee the event along with Townsquare Media celebrity chefs, including WPG's 104.1 Mayor in the Morning Harry Hurley, SOJO's Spring, 97.3 ESPN's Mike Gill and Pete Thompson, and Cat Country's Chelsea Corrine.

"We are thrilled to announce our 10th Annual Taste of the Quarter," said Steve Callender, General Manager of Tropicana Atlantic City. "It has been 10 incredible years partnering with United Way to raise funds for such a wonderful cause. This event not only gives us the chance to donate to our local community, but it is a great opportunity for all of Tropicana's restaurants and retail stores to come together and celebrate."

"Taste of the Quarter is more than a chance to sample some of Atlantic City's finest fare – it's a powerful example that when we join forces, we do more than we can alone," said Jim Cawley, United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey's president and CEO. "When the community comes together, United Way is positioned to continue changing lives and strengthening communities – one child, one adult, one family at a time. We're incredibly grateful to the dedicated community partners like Tropicana and the establishments in The Quarter for making our work possible."
