Sabine Area Restaurant Association is a chapter of the Texas Restaurant Association and a local resource for the hospitality and foodservice industry. The mission of S.A.R.A. is to support scholarships for Lamar University’s Hospitality Management Program, The Texas Restaurant Association’s Education Foundation, and educational and professional development for the Texas Chefs Association. Proceeds from our annual events and activities go back into our community through support of many local charities.
SARA’s roots can be traced back to the 1950’s when restaurant owners came together to raise money to keep the lights on during union strikes in our area. The association became more organized in 1976 when they elected an official board of directors, and put in place a set of by-laws. You can explore the original documents on here...
