Every spring ProStart students representing schools from around the state compete in the Oregon Prostart High School Culinary Championships presented by Boyds Coffee.

One Big Night is the association's largest fundraiser of the the year with a dinner and auction dedicated to raising funds for ORLA's Political Action Committee (ORLAPAC). Funds raised at this event are critical to the financial strength of our political action committee which plays a vital role in our ability to successfully elect business-friendly candidates to the state legislature.
