As a former coach for the Carver Center’s Maryland ProStart high school culinary team I can tell you your raffle ticket purchases help send the teams through competitions, with each win comes scholarship money, joy, hard work and dedication. Watch the video above to see a Carver’s team compete and the awards ceremony.
Proceeds from the Year of Dining Raffle are used to help underwrite the cost of hosting the Maryland ProStart Student Invitational (MPSI). MPSI is the state-wide competition for high school students who are in culinary arts, restaurant management and baking programs. Over 30 teams and 100 students will be competing in these state finals. Winners receive scholarships to post secondary schools and the opportunity to represent Maryland in the National Competition.
