Boat show

A boat-related sand sculpture, a pirate signed by John Gowdy, was the subject of many pictures at the boat show at the Atlantic City Convention Center. Like everything else in the center, the rum-carrying pirate had boats in his background.

ATLANTIC CITY — The fourth annual Captain’s Table Gala will take place March 1 at the Progressive Insurance Atlantic City Boat Show at the Convention Center.

The event's Facebook page describes the gala as "an evening full of fine foods from more than a dozen of the area’s finest chefs, free-flowing spirits and an elaborate array of desserts" 

The gala, which is hosted by Let Us Eat, Please Inc. and the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, Southern Branch, helps raise awareness and financial support for the summer feeding program that provide groceries to local families whose children receive free or reduced-price meals during the school year, according to a release from Atlantic County.

Students who received help from the program also are decorating ceramic mugs that will be sold at the event. Galloway Township Middle School students provided 120 mugs last year and plan to do the same this year. Egg Harbor City School District also provided 50 garden pots filled with seeds last year.

Tickets for the event are $125 per person.
