Speaker Mattiello, House Majority Leader Joseph Shekarchi and students from the ProStart® High School Culinary Arts and Foodservice Management Program at Cranston Area Career and Technical Center served more than 75 guests and raised $8,000 during the event, with $4,000 going to each charity. “I am so honored that Speaker Mattiello and Leader Shekarchi took time out of their busy schedules to truly ‘serve’ the public and help raise money for some great causes,” said Dale J. Venturini, President and CEO of RIHA. “Raising eight-thousand dollars for the Cranston Animal Shelter and our own Education Foundation is a wonderful accomplishment.”
