FRLA Gives Back
Children of Restaurant Employees (CORE) is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that FRLA is supporting at the 2017 Marketing + Operations Summit. They will have a booth in our Sponsor Networking Lobby and donations will be accepted throughout the entirety of the event. Recommended donations of $30 will give you the opportunity to win a 3 day/2 night hotel stay at the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa or a Bose Speaker.
Our Mission: to support the children of food and beverage employees navigating life-altering circumstances or conditions.
Our Vision: to bring support, joy, and a sense of caring for food and beverage families during times of extreme emotional and financial strain.
Since 2004, CORE has raised almost $2M and provided support to over 165 children from across the industry and the country. CORE recognizes that the core of our industry, the hospitality industry, are the millions of employees who work in food and beverage establishments across the US and that the core of these employees’ families are their children. In times of extreme emotional and financial strain brought on by family death, injury or diagnosed medical condition, loss of home, or other sudden or extreme circumstances, it can be difficult to make sure all children in the family feel safe and valued. CORE is committed to helping these children feel valued, special, and safe during these times of hardship.
