Sponsorship Opportunities

In appreciation to all that contribute to our industry on a daily basis, over 1300 hospitality employees are invited to join friendly competitions, followed by awards, company recognition and a BBQ for employees and their families. The 2024 event will take place at the Monterey County Fairgrounds on June 26, 2024.  Sponsorship funding enables our organization to open the day to all in the industry and offsets the cost of the numerous donors and volunteers that help to make the day successful for all.
