HFTP Helps 2018

As part of its ongoing charitable efforts, HFTP Helps at the 2018 HFTP Annual Convention will direct its fundraising towards the HFTP Scholarship fund in support of hospitality education. From its very beginning, HFTP and its chapters have actively provided for students working toward a career in hospitality and supporting the next generation of hospitality professionals. Traditionally, the HFTP Helps program has also supported a local charity located in the Annual Convention's host city. To follow tradition, the money raised at this year's event for the HFTP Scholarship will be directed to area hospitality, finance and technology centered education programs overseen by NAF. 

The HFTP Helps silent auction fundraiser will be held Friday, October 26, 2018 from 5:15 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at HFTP Annual Convention. HFTP Annual Convention will take place from October 24-26, 2018 at the Omni Louisville Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky USA.
