Teams of high school students and restaurant executives took part in a fast-paced, high-stakes cooking competition on Sunday at GardenWalk in Anaheim. 

Each restaurant team made a donation to be part of the battle royale with a few teams raising extra through peer-to-peer fundraising. Specialty Restaurants Corporation and Urban Plates raised the most money for high school enrichment programs such as field trips, job training, and classroom equipment.

This is the first time the Clash has been open to the general public – what a turnout! Attendees enjoyed family-fun activities like a live blues band, henna, bites, and a photo booth! The Culinary + Cocktail Clash brought our restaurant community together to raise more than $100,000 to support life-changing programs in public schools.
