Greater Dallas Restaurant Association
The GDRA wanted to support, at a local level, scholarships offered to the Dallas Independent School District’s Pro-Start program by the Texas Restaurant Association. It also wanted to build positive relationships with the Dallas ISD’s board members.
Elettore created an event called Food In Fashion. One part of the program teamed student chefs in the PRO-Start program with Dallas ISD trustees in a friendly, culinary cook-off competition.
The other part of the program teamed emerging clothing designers in Dallas with restaurant members of the GDRA. Together, they developed runway fashions that somehow incorporated either the food or service items connected to the sponsor restaurant.
The 2017, 2018 and 2019 Food in Fashion events we produced have been rousing successes.
