A Major Fundraiser

Hosted by the current MCHA Board Chair, this popular gathering brings together MCHA members and supporters for an evening of dining, auction festivities and opportunities to socialize with local professionals. Funds from this annual event help MCHA administer government affairs, education and scholarship programs, along with events that honor Monterey County’s 20,000+ hospitality employees. A successful gala boosts the organization’s operating budget and keeps dues low for all members.
