The Culinary Futures Cocktail Hour and Silent Auction to support Careers Through Culinary Arts Program (C-CAP) will be held Sunday, March 8, 2015 from 6-8 p.m., at Ovation, Chicago’s premier event space.
Proudly hosted by HIC, Harold Import Co., Conimar Corporation, Primula, Fletchers’ Mill, and R.S.V.P. International, Inc., this 6th annual event brings together industry professionals and friends to benefit C-CAP, a national non-profit organization that works with public schools to prepare at-risk students for college and careers in the restaurant and hospitality industry.
The Careers Through Culinary Arts’ curriculum enrichment program links public high school culinary teachers and their students to the foodservice industry.
“C-CAP’s efforts in providing teacher training, scholarship and cooking competitions, job training, internships, college and career advising, and product and equipment donations are essential,” says Robert Laub, president of HIC, Harold Import Co. “For the past six years, we are glad that this event has played an important part in helping the organization attain its goals.”
In the 2014-2015 academic year, C-CAP Chicago impacted the lives of 3,000 students in 18 public schools working with 34 teachers in job training and internships, teacher trainings, college and career advising, product donations and culinary competitions that lead to culinary school scholarships. In 2013-2014 Academic Year-End Results included awarding 30 Scholarships valued at $584,453.
During this year’s event, guests will enjoy dishes prepared and served by C-CAP students from nine local Chicago High Schools.
