VIP Tickets for the event are $125/per person, which allow you to take in the experience, with special seating in the VIP Room and tableside service! We also have General Admission Tickets available, which are $75/per person. Please join The FoodBank in our mission to alleviate hunger in our local communities!

The Culinary Classic – the first of its kind at the Jersey Shore – was established in 1991, bringing together the finest restaurants, caterers, wineries and breweries for over 20 years.

The Culinary Classic has maintained its fine tradition of excellence throughout the years. Guests sip specialty cocktails, wines and champagne from premier vineyards and taste micro-brewed beer from local New Jersey breweries, all while sampling the finest food the Jersey Shore has to offer.

All food and beverages for this benefit are donated. It takes all of our participants many hours of preparation and substantial resources to make this event a success. Without them, none of this event would be possible!
