ADVOCACY THROUGH FOOD: CALL FOR RESTAURANTS FOR BLUE RIBBON LEGISLATIVE RECEPTION

Restaurants are a powerful economic force, yet legislators and special interest groups introduce dozens of bills and regulations each year that could hurt the ability of restaurants to stay open. Join us at our annual CRA Blue Ribbon Legislative Reception to kick off the legislative session and show our state legislators the full force of our industry!

We are actively recruiting restaurants to participate in this year’s event.  Participating restaurants must be able to provide 250 tastes, your own serving and cooking equipment and staff. If you are interested in participating, please complete this form.  Any questions, contact Nicolle Montgomery at (303) 830-2972 or nmontgomery@corestaurant.org

Blue Ribbon Reception
Wednesday, January 10 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
