The Connecticut Restaurant Association (CRA) held its annual charity golf tournament on June 7, 2016 at The Country Club of Waterbury. Trade guests from a variety of industry sectors including food, beverage and allied services arrived for lunch before teeing off in teams to play 18-holes. Sarah Maloney, the executive director of the Connecticut Restaurant Association, said more than 100 golfers played in this year’s tournament. A Belvedere Vodka tent was set up on the course, serving Belvedere Unfiltered mixed as a Dirty Martini and Belvedere Wild Berry in lemonade and iced tea. After playing 18-holes, golfers went back to the club house for a dinner, raffle and awards. Proceeds from the raffle went to support the Connecticut Hospitality Education Foundation (CHEF) ProStart Program, a two-year, hospitality industry career-building program for high school students.
