Support the future of hospitality

Supporting ProStart means that you understand. You get that workforce development begins with mentoring young people interested in culinary and management careers. 

Sponsor (EF) Education Foundation Events.

Sponsoring The Golf FORE! Education tournament not only puts your name and business in front of industry leaders, but it also shows your deep commitment to supporting the structures that hold our industry up!

Proud home to the University of Washington's Men's and Women's golf teams, Washington National Golf Club is one of the Pacific Northwest’s true gems. Designed by award-winning architect John Fought, the 18-hole championship golf course features an exceptional array of contrasting aesthetics. Rugged transitional areas dotted with native fescue dissect lush, emerald fairways, and spectacular, white-sand bunkers cradle impeccably maintained greens.

“The 2016 Golf FORE! Education Tournament instantly put me together with four supporters of our industry.

It only took a few holes before we started to talk about how their company and our association could work together to provide cost savings for our members. Our ideas turned into one of the association’s biggest programs. It all started over a golf game.“

"This tournament was a great place to explore future workforce development. Great for managers that are looking for employment pipelines right at home."
