FRLA Broward to Honor High School Culinary Programs and Educators

The Broward Chapter of the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association (FRLA) is hosting their 10th Annual Excellence in Education Gala Thursday, May 23, at the Marriott Harbor Beach Hotel in Fort Lauderdale. The event celebrates and awards Broward high schools with culinary programs, and the teachers who oversee these programs. The evening will also honor Jack Sieler, former Mayor of Fort Lauderdale, with the 2019 Industry Ambassador Award.

This Gala benefits the FRLA Education Fund, which provides scholarship opportunities, curriculums, textbooks, supplies and support to local high school students in the ProStart Culinary Program and the Hospitality & Tourism Management Program (HTMP). A portion of the night’s proceeds will benefit Broward County’s public high schools and approximately 7,000 Broward students who are pursuing careers in the hospitality industry.

Tickets for high school staff cost $49, and individual tickets cost $139. Both ticket options are still available and can be purchased here.
