The Grateful Table is a fundraising dinner to launch Restaurants Care, an emergency assistance fund for restaurant workers facing an unexpected hardship. KROST CPAs in alliance with the California Restaurant Association Foundation (CRAF) is committed to building and maintaining a thriving people-focused restaurant community.

The idea for this fundraiser started in 2015 when a chef in Sacramento, biking home after a late-night shift, was struck in a hit-and-run. He wasn’t expected to make it. The Sacramento restaurant community came together and in a matter of days and raised thousands of dollars to cover his medical expenses and aid his recovery. These stories are not uncommon. Earlier this year, the California Restaurant Association Foundation (501c3 nonprofit) launched Restaurants Care to provide financial assistance and peace of mind to restaurant workers affected by injury, illness or natural disaster.

Leaders in the restaurant community will come together on September 9 at the OC Fair & Event Center to support the core of the restaurant industry, the people who make every meal possible. KROST is an inaugural supporter of the program, we truly believe the Restaurants Care will have a substantial impact on the restaurant industry and the community.

KROST CPAs is a proud sponsor of this event. More information and tickets here: calrestfoundation.org/gratefultable.
