Join us on March 21 at Russell’s Restaurant at the CSN Cheyenne Campus beginning at 5:30 for a super fun and meaningful event! Proceeds benefit the brand new Nevada Hotel and Lodging Foundation scholarship fund.
The event will be a “Dine and Wine Tasting with Dessert” experience. Executives from throughout the hotel industry will be attending, meeting and greeting in support of this important activity.
The Nevada Hotel and Lodging Foundation is aligned with the goals and vision of the Nevada Hotel and Lodging Association. The mission is to grant scholarships for education, certifications and training programs to eligible persons seeking to enter or advance within the hospitality industry in Nevada.
The board of trustees is comprised of experienced senior level leaders in the industry with an interest in providing educational opportunities for Nevada students attending accredited universities, colleges and educational institutes. The responsibilities of the board include fundraising, allocation of scholarship funds and assisting in the development and ongoing growth of the foundation.
“We are so excited to bring this additional educational resource to our members and our community,” states Diane Gandy, Founder and President. “It is our desire to help advance talented individuals in our Nevada communities and in our properties in completion of their college degrees or continuing education programs in the hospitality industry.”
