ProStart teaches teamwork, time management skills and leadership, and provides these students with immediate qualifications for a job in the hospitality industry. Many participants also receive culinary scholarships to four-year universities.
“Most of our events are tailored to our members, but this is a special one that’s so fun it needs to be open it to the public,” said Marilou Halvorsen, president of the NJRHA. “It also provides people an opportunity to support a great cause while tasting some delectable dishes cooked on site by several fabulous NJ restaurants and talented ProStart students,” she added.
