The Legacy Dinner


Out of an abundance of caution and concern for public health, the Legacy Dinner, originally scheduled for Saturday, April 25, 2020, will be postponed.

We plan to set a new date when concerns for public health are calmed and the situation becomes more stable. Of course, we hope this is an unnecessary precaution, but a prudent one, nonetheless.

If you purchased tickets, we hope for your patience until we are in a position to update you in a few weeks. However, if you wish to receive a refund now, please contact Annie Clausen (aclause1@cscc.edu).

We appreciate the loyal support of this event's special audience over the years and know you will understand this unanticipated disruption. Thank you for your patience.

If you would like to contribute to the fund:

Legacy Dinner proceeds support the Renee and Ziggy Allespach Fund, created to honor their many contributions to Columbus State Community College and the Columbus culinary arts community.

Ziggy Allespach's passion, generosity, and talent lifted up those who knew him and enriched the lives of countless restaurant patrons, peers, students, and educators.



Not only did Ziggy help to reshape the culinary landscape of Central Ohio, but his legacy as an educator and work to establish the Columbus State Culinary Apprentice Program continues to touch lives and impact the industry he loved.
