Celebrate Louisiana’s hospitality industry while benefiting the Louisiana Hospitality Foundation

Join us for the 8th annual Gold Medal Chefs Gala and Hospitality Awards, an annual fundraiser benefiting the Louisiana Hospitality Foundation. The event features a five-course seated dinner with dishes prepared by five of Louisiana’s best chefs, as well as an awards ceremony to honor those in our community who make a significant, positive impact on our hospitality industry.

The Louisiana Hospitality Foundation’s mission is to strengthen Louisiana’s hospitality industry through support of individuals within the community. We do this by supporting workforce development programs directly related to our industry; providing access to culinary and hospitality education; working to ensure a positive perception of Louisiana’s hospitality industry; and providing financial assistance and/or guidance to people in the hospitality industry during times of crisis.

A portion of ticket sales are tax deductible.
