Recognizing Outstanding Community Service and Determination
The National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation created the Restaurant Neighbor Award with founding partner American Express to highlight the positive contributions restaurants make in their local neighborhoods each and every day. The Faces of Diversity American Dream Award honors individuals from a diverse background who, through hard work and determination, have realized their American dream.
Oregon Restaurant & Lodging Association is pleased to honor 4 state finalists of these awards during Convention on September 30, 2018, at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Portland Washington Square. State finalists' nominations were forwarded to the NRAEF where restaurants from across the U.S. competed for $10,000 to continue their charitable works. Read more on all state finalists at ChooseRestaurants.org. Nominations for the 2019 awards will open soon and members are encouraged to apply.
Congratulations to the 2018 Restaurant Neighbor Award state winners!
