community

Community service: Our NACE chapter serves our community in many ways, both in and out of NACE.  Our members volunteer with local food banks, animal rescues and shelters, culinary arts programs, schools, hospitality organizations, and more.

Our main fundraiser each year benefits the Culinary Arts Program (http://www.cptc.edu/culinary) at Clover Park Technical College in Lakewood, WA.  We donate money for scholarships and also invite past recipients to speak about how it made a difference in their lives.  A portion of the auction's proceeds also benefits NACE Foundation, (http://www.nace.net/cs/foundation/overview) giving scholarships to students and caterers.

Donations for our auction are always warmly and gratefully welcomed, no matter how large or how small!
