The Charleston Restaurant Foundation (CRF) mission is to support the charitable deeds of the Lowcountry Hospitality Association, which serves the geographical area of Charleston, South Carolina.   Its focus is to advocate its member restaurants by providing them the resources they need so that their guests can savor and celebrate Lowcountry cuisine.  Annual fundraising events enable the CRF to give back to the community that has so generously supported its members.  To date, those fundraising efforts have enabled the CRF to donate over One Million ($1,000,000) Dollars to local charities.
