The Palm Beach chapter of the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association (FRLA) will host the first “Eat in For Education” virtual event to support educational scholarships for local culinary and hospitality students on January 20 and 21.
Fifteen local restaurants and hotels will participate by donating three-course takeout meals for the event. Diners have a two-tier option to spend $50 or $100 on a takeout meal for two. The $100 ticket includes a bottle of red or white wine. FRLA will encourage Palm Beach County residents to participate in this opportunity to support local restaurants and enable students to grow in the hospitality industry.
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, the annual event–previously called Palm Beach E.A.T.S.–was a hit with local diners and, over the past four years, has raised almost $80,000. FRLA donated the funds to students launching their careers in the Florida hospitality industry. This year’s modified virtual event still aims to help students and an industry that has been hit harder than any other in the Sunshine State.
“2020 has been a difficult year for the restaurant community. We are committed to being able to provide scholarships for our local students,” said Jodi Cross, regional director of the Palm Beach Chapter of the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association. “This event is one of our best fundraisers, so we got creative and designed a take-out theme. The menus are delicious, and the value is amazing. I predict it will sell out quickly.”
