Tasty Italia another success

The Tasty Italia dinner was again held Saturday evening in the culinary labs and Bistro Verde. According to Karen Sanders, executive director of the LLCC Foundation, the event has been called both Joys of the Table and Tasty Italia. In 2015, community leaders Satch Pecori and Mike Aiello set out on a mission — a culinary journey of sorts — to help LLCC culinary students. Not only have their wonderful, tasty and joyful events directly helped students with scholarships, but also ensured that a group of students had an experience of a lifetime with a study abroad trip to Italy in 2018. All attendees ensure the success of these events as it has become one of the most sought after tickets in town! A very special thanks to Satch Pecori and Mike Aiello for the special investment in LLCC students.
