ORA/NRA Golf Classic Tees Up to be Great Success

The 21st annual ORA/NRA Golf Classic was held at the New Albany Country Club on June 26. In addition to a beautiful course and amazing food, approximately 100 industry leaders gathered to celebrate a worthy cause with net proceeds from the event benefiting the ORA’s political advocacy efforts and the National Restaurant Association (NRA) Restaurant Advocacy Fund (RAF).

During the luncheon, John Barker, ORA President & CEO, thanked all those in attendance. He reminded them of the great efforts the ORA and the NRA undertake on a daily basis to protect Ohio’s foodservice industry and small businesses from threats against them bot at the Statehouse and Washington D.C.
