2012 Hospitality Gala: An Evening at the Emerald Isle
An Evening at the Emerald Isle is the theme for the 2012 Hospitality Gala on March 23, at 5:30 p.m. in the Big Rapids Holiday Inn.
This is the 21st Annual Hospitality Gala, which is put on by a selected student committee each year. Tickets are $75, which includes admission, a five course dinner, and entertainment.
“The types of activities attendees should expect to see at the Gala is a live and silent auction, hear from guest speaker Ireland Chef Edward Hayden, Irish dancers, cocktail hour, and live Twitter feeds,” said Kimberly Outinen, Hospitality Gala Committee Member.
Guest speaker and Ireland Chef, Edward Hayden has contributed a host of involvements to the culinary field, such as having a column in the Sunday World, published recipes in the Sunday Tribune, Irish Independent and RTE Guide, and has a regular cookery slot on TV3’s Ireland AM.
Students, faculty, and staff are invited to attend and experience the elegance of this evening.
“This is a really great event to attend. This Gala has opened up many networking opportunities for me, such as helping me get a summer internship, and I have learned a lot about marketing that I didn’t know before,” said Outinen.
A silent auction will take place at the event with donated items from local businesses.
