Resorts World Casino, Boys & Girls Host Global Cuisine
Resorts World Casino New York City partnered with the Boys & Girls Club of Metro Queens to host its Thirteenth Annual Global Cuisine of Queens Food Tasting event on Wednesday, November 30, at Resorts World New York in Jamaica.
Community leaders, businesses and citizens came together to taste the diverse flavors of Queens in support of the local non-profit. Wednesday night’s event raised over $46,000 to help support our afterschool programs.
The event showcased a sampling over 30 of the finest restaurants, bakeries, caterers, wineries, and breweries in Queens, Brooklyn, and Long Island, all for the benefit of the Boys & Girls Club. The Boys & Girls Club works to help at-risk youth to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens, and the community leaders of tomorrow.
As well as supporting Global Cuisine of Queens, Resorts World is also a generous sponsor of the Boys & Girls Club’s after school educational programming by providing annual grants. These educational programs enhance and reinforce skills and knowledge that students have gained in the classroom by providing opportunities for afterschool enrichment. Resorts World has provided significant grants for the past four years to support this critical programming.
“Resorts World is honored to partner with the Boys and Girls Club to provide vital services and programming to the children and communities of Queens,” said Michelle Stoddart, Director of PR and Community Development at Resorts World Casino New York City. “The Global Cuisine of Queens is one of our favorite events of the year, as it showcases the diversity of our great borough. In sponsoring this event and other programming, we’re thrilled to support the club in their efforts to help at risk youth reach their full potential and become tomorrow’s community leaders.”
To make this year’s event possible, local restaurants and partners donated food items, such as appetizers, hors d’oeuvres, desserts, main dishes and drinks. Participating vendors included RW Prime, Thai Rock, Tom Cat Bakery, Shake Shack, Kurry Qulture, LaGuardia Plaza Hotel’s Elements Lounge, Schmidt’s Confectionery, De Mole Restaurant and Zenon Taverna.
