Annual Online Auction to Grow Hospitality Education 

The CHLA Hospitality Foundation would like to thank the many generous members of the industry who donated items to the 2018 annual online auction, which supports its scholarship program.  

CHLA and its Foundation have been working with high schools, community colleges and workforce development agencies to help raise the awareness of careers in the hospitality industry.  This increased focus on the industry has resulted in an increase in available courses, and in the number of students who are making career changes.  We need a well-trained and excited workforce pool!
