Red Door (2020)

2020 Scholarship Gala

Thank you to all of those who attended and contributed to the Canadian Hospitality Foundation RED DOOR Benefit Gala on Saturday, February 29, 2020.

Because of guests and donors support we are able to provide support to passionate and dedicated students across Canada wishing to enter our industry. Encouraging skilled labour to enter our industry! Building our future human capital!

We would like to say a special thanks to those organizations who took that extra step and became partners and sponsors of the Red Door gala, many who have consistently supported the CHF for ten and twenty plus years.

A special thank you to Kevin Frankish our Master of Ceremonies – our long-time supporter who ensured that our guests were well informed and encouraged to support the scholarship program! Thank you so much for bringing that phenomenal energy and elegance to our black tie event.

Thank you to the staff at Hotel X for making our event run smoothly and who know and understand what a truly excellent meal can be.

Thank you as well to our product sponsors, particularly to Andrew Peller Limited who has been the Gala’s wine sponsor for twenty plus years!

Thank you to our long standing water sponsor, ESKA for providing the pure sparkling and still waters for the entire event.

Thank you to all of the organizations who contributed to the Live Auction, Raffle, Silent Auction and Balloon Bonanza. Please take a moment to glance through our evening’s program below to see all of our donors, many who have supported the gala for twenty years. And last but most certainly not least, thank you to our student volunteers who joined us for the evening and worked very hard manning the silent auction tables and helping our auctioneer ensure that we captured all the bidders in the live auction. They all helped make the evening a great success.
