Share |





Join KRHA as we celebrate the individuals that shape the hospitality industry in Kansas. Most nights you're busy serving others, but for one night, we want to give you the night out. A microbrew tasting, delectable food, and recognition of our industry leaders will be on deck. This FUN-raising event benefits the professional development of youth and rising leaders in our industry, with all proceeds being donated to the Kansas Restaurant & Hospitality Educational Foundation. 

The Educational Foundation of the KRHA promotes the importance of food safety, responsible liquor service and educating the future industry workforce with ProStart school-to-career training in over 30 Kansas schools. Your attendance and support continue this mission by providing discounted ServSafe Manager certification, offering education opportunities for hospitality careers through ProStart, the purchase of equipment to support culinary education in Kansas High Schools and more.


Join us October 12, 2020 For Hospitality Night Out.


Give yourself and your staff a "Night Out" to sip and savor with other industry professionals.  Guests can spend the evening sampling food and drink.  Back by popular demand, sampling of Kansas microbrews!
