Nevada Hotel and Lodging Foundation scholarship events

Join us tonight for a Fall Fiesta Tequila tasting social at the Platinum Hotel.  Tequila, tasty treats, meeting up with industry colleagues and making new friends.  What could be better than that?  Helping to provide scholarships through the Nevada Hotel and Lodging Foundation is even better!

Proceeds from the Fall Fiesta will benefit the Nevada Hotel and Lodging Foundation.  The foundation supports scholarships for UNLV, UNR, CSN and TTMC entities.  The foundation was formed in late 2018 and is led by a progressive board of trustees:

Chairman:  Simon Pettigrew, Cosmopolitan Las Vegas

Vice Chair:  Chris Breed, Soleil Management

President/Secretary:  Diane Gandy

Vice President/Treasurer:  Irving Pamblanco

Jaime Miranda, Venetian/Palazzo

Nevada Hotel and Lodging Foundation

The foundation is aligned with the goals and vision of the Nevada Hotel and Lodging Association. Our mission is to grant scholarships for education, certifications and training programs to eligible persons seeking to enter or advance within the hospitality industry. We help to create futures.

The Nevada Hotel and Lodging Association food and beverage team, led by Debbie Ngai, is comprised of outstanding professionals in the culinary field.  These committee members plan quarterly events to raise funds for the foundation scholarship program.

The next fun event will be our Perfect Pairings Craft Beer Tasting event on November 13, poolside, at Tahiti Village.  This event will pair craft beer with tasty creations prepared by Tahiti’s chef and team.  An expert beer master will share some information about craft beers, as well.  This event is also a donation drive for Project 150 supporting Clark County’s homeless high school youth.  Refer here for a list of needed supplies.  All donations are much appreciated.

Interested in supporting industry scholarships?

If any of our members would like to help sponsor an event for the foundation, please contact us. Proceeds in the scholarship fund will be awarded according to established procedures in 2020.  We are always appreciative of assistance with our Nevada Hotel and Lodging Foundation events.
