The Sheraton Atlantic City Hotel will be hosting a Beef and Beer Fundraiser to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters (BB/BS) of Atlantic and Cape May Counties. The event will be take place on Friday, May 29 at the Sheraton Atlantic City Convention Center Hotel.

r01829_ext_01_jCarla Caulk, director of Sales and Marketing at Sheraton Hotels, says the Sheraton has decided to fund this event because the staff has seen and experienced the “incredible impact BB/BS has on the lives of our community’s children.”

Caulk said many of her associates have volunteered as mentors through BB/BS at Atlantic City ’s Texas Avenue School. “To know that you can change a child’s life for the better, or to give them encouragement to achieve something they might not have before…is incredibly rewarding,” she said.

Tun Tavern Restaurant and Brewery will be providing the beer at this event. “We [Sheraton and Tun Tavern] work cooperatively on a lot of events, hotel package offers as well as guest services and dining options,” Caulk said.

Diane Tharp, Special Events Manager at Tun Tavern, says they will be providing Tune Lite, a light bodied refreshing ale, and Pale Ale, an English style Pale with imported British malts and a “tun” of British aroma hops.

The fundraiser begins with a nine-hole golf tournament to be held at McCullough’s Emerald Golf Links in Egg Harbor Township, with tee times beginning at 12:30 PM. The Beef & Beer festivities will begin at 6 PM and include dinner, custom beer selections brewed by the Tun Tavern Restaurant and Brewery, and entertainment provided by Center Stage. The night will end with a silent auction with premium items including a one-week vacation package to Grenada, signed football from the 2008 NY Jets and 3 tickets to a Phillies home game: Diamond Club seats, 7 rows behind home plate.

Tickets are $30 each or $50 for two. Golf Tournament entries are $50 per person and includes, golf, cart and greens fees. The Sheraton is also offering hotel packages for $119 to include two tickets to the evening’s Beef & Beer event, and overnight accommodations for two; with $50 of the package price donated to BB/BS.
