Mercyhurst culinary students combine talents to support Spring Fiesta

Students from Mercyhurst Erie's hospitality program and Mercyhurst North East’s Culinary and Wine Institute will pool their resources in support of Mercyhurst Preparatory High School’s popular Spring Fiesta. The annual fundraiser will be held Saturday, March 20, at the prep school from 6:30 to 11 p.m.

Previously known as “Spring Break,” this year’s school benefit will showcase food stations created by MNE culinary students, while Mercyhurst Erie’s hospitality students cater the desserts. Unique food stations, including a “clam hut” featuring fresh, steamed clams, a “nacho station” and roast beef carving station are just a few of the evening’s menu offerings.

“I really feel that our students will benefit from this experience by applying their knowledge from the classroom to a real-life event that they can add to their resume,” said Beth Ann Sheldon, MNE’s director of hospitality management.

Besides the gastronomical treats, Spring Fiesta guests will also enjoy games of chance, including blackjack tables and betting wheels; a silent auction and more.

Tickets are $25 apiece and available to the public, age 21 and older. For more information, click here.
