Scholarship Committee

This committee serves as the primary fundraiser for the CFHLA Foundation and our CFHLA Gives Program, which supports hospitality student scholarships and educational grants. All proceeds secured from national and local auction, in addition to direct monetary donations, are utilized to support CFHLA Hospitality student scholarships and grants.

This year 24 Scholarship Committee Members secured a minimum of $1,500 each in monetary and/or auction donations for the CFHLA Gives Program. These funds will help support the scholarships and educational grants that will be announced at the CFHLA Gives Luncheon on April 20, 2023.
