Scholarship Awards Gala

    ‘Tis the season for giving, and CHLA’s Hospitality Foundation was certainly in the spirit during its annual Gala event when the association formally gave away $155,000 in scholarships to promising college students bound for the hospitality industry. Gala attendees came from every corner of the state to meet the students (representing 11 California colleges), participate in raffles, and to toast to the students’ future careers. As an organization event dedicated to building the future leadership of the hospitality industry, the CHLA Hospitality Foundation would like to thank its attendees for their support and invite all hoteliers to encourage other promising college students to apply for awards next year.
