Ss. Robert & William Community Presents the Annual 'Taste of Nations Gala'

On Saturday, April 14, 2018, approximately 300 guests will gather to celebrate unity and diversity within the SRW School and Parish Communities.  As a body which advocates peace, the evening will have a ‘Peace’ theme with decorations which reflect harmony and students wearing tie-dyed apparel. 

The annual ‘Taste of Nations’ Gala presents cuisines from various countries including Europe, Ireland, Italy, Latin America, American Comfort and the Philippines to name a few.  The school classrooms will be transformed into each of these countries, where taste-sized portions will be served to the guests.  The ethnic fare will highlight items such as stuffed cabbage, pierogis, cabbage and noodles, corned beef sandwiches, pork chopsuey, and chicken cordon bleu casserole.  The Vienna Café rounds out the menu with homemade pastries and coffee.

The evening begins at 5:00pm and guests will be welcomed with dinner music, sideboards, and various raffles.  The dinner journey will begin at 5:45p.m.  Various entertainment will take place throughout the venue, as well as a Cigar Tent. 

Additionally, the 2018 Taste of Nation’s recipients will be honored.  They include:  Community Award:  VASJ High School; Faculty Member:  Patrice Garuckas; Alumni, Chris Mominey; and Grandparents, Linda and Lou Shenk.
