GAME ON makes history for TRAEF!

Nov 16
2016

In a history-making move, the Texas Restaurant Association Education Foundation (TRAEF) partnered with TOPGOLF for the first time to host a simultaneous, red-hot, four-city golf competition, raising over $55,000 for TRAEF programs and initiatives.

Over 360 restaurateurs, Texas Restaurant Association (TRA) and TRAEF members, leadership, staff, sponsors and volunteers came out to get their best 'game on' at four TOPGOLF locations - Austin, Dallas, San Antonio and Houston/Katy. TRAEF is the very first nonprofit organization to ever host a multi-city tournament with TOPGOLF. In addition to a multi-city friendly competition, teams also competed within each location.

Winning teams included Texas Mutual in Austin, Ace Mart in Dallas, Dish Society in Houston/Katy and a mixed team of golfers in San Antonio.  

TRAEF is now preparing for their largest event of the year - the Texas ProStart Invitational competition taking place in January. Texas ProStart is an industry-based, two-year high school culinary arts and restaurant management curriculum, currently operating in over 240 Texas high schools, reaching over 25,000 students annually.

Kudos and big thanks to TOPGOLF and to all event sponsors: ECOLAB, Dish SocietyReventionTexas MutualSyscoAuto-ChlorBen E. KeithAce MartTexas Beef Council and United Healthcare.
