RLC provides the thought leadership and environment that restaurant executives and their organizations look for to build critical relationships.

Thomas Keller Golf Classic
June 2-3, 2019
The Silverado Resort & Spa, 1600 Atlas Peak Road, Napa, CA
KROST will be attending the Thomas Keller Golf Classic on June 2nd and 3rd in Napa, California.

Thomas Keller’s culinary career is an inspiration to all Culinary Institute of America (CIA) students and he has served as a mentor to many of them. His passion for food and mentorship is matched only by his enthusiasm for golf. That is why we created the Thomas Keller Golf Classic to benefit the Culinary Institute of America by raising essential scholarship funds for CIA students.

The two-day event kicks off on Sunday night with a gala dinner and live auction at the CIA at Copia. The golf outing, held the next day at Silverado Resort and Spa, is in a scramble format with a shotgun start. Both venues are in beautiful Napa, CA.

Supporters have the opportunity to showcase products or sponsor a tasting table. Last year’s inaugural event was a tremendous success. Festive and fun—with a healthy dose of friendly competition thrown in—the two days raised over $500,000 in student scholarships!
