Hospitality Management Celebrates Le Gourmet Success
On October 26th, the Hospitality Management program held its 11th annual Le Gourmet event in Washington, DC. Hosted at the University Club, nearly 230 individuals enjoyed an evening of food, drink, gambling (for fun), silent and live auction, and dancing. During the awards ceremony, the Hospitality Management program honored Carol Simon (General Manager of the Stonewall Jackson Hotel) with the Corporate Citizenship Award, Nicholas DiMeglio (Vice President and General Manager of the Ritz-Carlton Aspen Highlands) with the Dolley Madison Award, and Amy McPherson (President and Managing Director of Europe for Marriott International Hotels and Resorts) was inducted into the Hospitality Management Hall of Fame. In addition, $5,000 of the night’s proceeds will be placed into the Susan J. Reid Hospitality Management Scholarship. Finally, our very own students, Maggie Goetzman and Kristen Gratton, were recognized for receiving the 2nd Annual Rick Casey Scholarship. The event raised nearly $50,000 for the Hospitality Management program. In all, the evening was a huge success and we look forward to next year’s event.
