MAFTO hosts dinners and events promoting the food industry through education and scholarship endeavors throughout the year. We raise money for local charities and the less fortunate.

Industry Dinners
MAFTO organizes retailer membership dinners each year. These dinners feature special guests within a specific channel and provide members with opportunity to network with the local trade community. Each of these events is designed to make an informative & enjoyable evening with proceeds used for local charities and members’ children scholarships.

Annual Golf Outing
Our annual social event is held at one of the top golf courses in the Delaware Valley. Many in the industry say it is one of the best golf events held in the local industry with fabulous door prizes, skill prizes and time spent with peers and friends. Everyone enjoys the camaraderie.

Annual Gala (Signature Event)
Each year MAFTO honors a retailer for their contributions and service to the local food industry. For the past 12 years, MAFTO has hosted a fun weekend event. The weekend features a Friday evening party; Saturday afternoon hospitality event, a black-tie optional dinner-dance on Saturday evening, and culminating on Sunday morning with a lavish Breakfast Buffet. Scholarships are awarded to members’ children each year at this event.

Monte Carlo Holiday Party (Christmas for All Kids)
A truly fun evening complete with card games, roulette wheels & craps tables along with holiday cheer and dinner. This is our combined holiday get together event and toy donation drive. In addition to the MAFTO organization donating a minimum of $1,000 in toys, we ask every attendee to bring an unwrapped toy that will be donated to local charity named each year. Attendees start off with some funds and from there it is up to them to win as many chips as possible, so that they have a better chance of winning one of the great prizes given away at the end of the evening.

Scholarship Program
Each year MAFTO awards several scholarships to members’ children that are in college or enrolled in a curriculum of higher education. Proceeds from the year’s events determine the number of scholarships available. These scholarships are usually awarded at the Gala dinner event in November of each year.

Save-A-Life Fund
Our Save-A-Life Fund committee receives numerous requests each year advising them of industry peers and/or their immediate families that have temporary setbacks or illnesses. MAFTO will respond with a donation or contribution to help out our local industry peers when they most need financial assistance. Please let us know of anyone in the industry that may be in need of assistance.
