On February 15, 2018, RI Hospitality Education Foundation hosted the 7th Annual RI ProStart Invitational at the Omni Providence. Nearly fifty students from seven local high schools showed off their foodservice and management technical skills in front of nearly 40 judges. The students competed for over $900,000 in college scholarships.
