Sponsorship opportunities

Each of our fashion designs are sponsored by restaurants. Would your restaurant enjoy the visibility (and creativity) of sponsoring a fashion entry in our Food in Fashion show?

Our culinary competition showcases the area's top vocational restaurant career programs from public schools and non-profit organizations. Would your business like to align itself with future leaders in our industry ... and the great programs that are producing them?

For our fabulous new event location, we seek sponsors for pre- and post-Fashion show VIP receptions plus the Food in Fashion show itself. Would your company, service or product (or you personally) value our guests and our cause?

If so, please review our sponsorship opportunities and benefits.
