Our Giving Tuesday Note for the CRA Education Foundation #CRAEF

Thanksgiving was fun this year as Pamela and I welcomed our our niece from Los Angeles for the holiday weekend. We had a great time together and it made me think of ways to say Thanks. Of course CRAEF comes to mind first with the work the CRAEF team and all our volunteers do for California ProStart Students throughout the year. And ProStart Bootcamp is ramping up in a few days to prepare all students and teachers for the California state competition being held in Sacramento in March.

This section was prepared by the CRAEF Team and I hope you keep a donation to CRAEF in your Giving Tuesday Plans:

Last month, more than 100 leaders from the state’s restaurant industry volunteered in 56 local high schools to teach job readiness skills to students. In an incredible achievement for our foundation, nearly 3,000 students participated in the day’s events, learning how to land a job, work a job and be a leader. It is just one of the many great successes CRAEF has had in 2015!

Help us continue the foundation’s momentum from ProStart(r) competition, the Culinary Clash and FIT Day(tm). We hope you will consider CRAEF on this year’s #GivingTuesday. So mark your calendars for December 1, and plan to detox from all your Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping with just a little bit of giving. I know Paul Barron and the team at FoodableTV is seeing the #ProStart #Student EYES here along with @WeRRestaurants and @ProStart. Come on Rock My Restaurant rockers – time to dig deep for #California #ProStart. Might have more impact than you can ever imagine.

Please Donate Here! Thank you!
