Texas ProStart Golf Classic
The official golf tournament of the Texas Restaurant Association. The newly expanded two-day tournament raised $113,000 for the TRAEF ($30,000 more than last year!) and was held at the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort & Spa in Bastrop, Texas.

TRA President's Gala
The TRA President’s Gala brings approximately 400 leaders of the industry and association together to celebrate our accomplishments. The 2012 Gala promises to be even more exciting as we celebrate our 75th anniversary. We will honor our past presidents and TRA Hall of Honor inductees at this black-tie event that features excellent food, conversation and entertainment. All proceeds benefit the Texas Restaurant Association Education Foundation.

Texas ProStart Invitational
Regional and Statewide Student Competitions

High school culinary and restaurant management teams from Texas ProStart schools across the state gather to compete and test their skills. Many hours of preparation and knowledge go into these events and the results are always exciting.
