We look forward to the day when we can celebrate our community in person again. We have rescheduled our annual Hospitality Division Cocktail Reception, originally set for Tuesday, June 2, to take place on Thursday, November 12. As always, we schedule our reception to coincide with New York University's International Hospitality Industry Investment Conference. This conference has also been rescheduled for November 11-12, 2020. We will be in touch regarding tickets accompanying journal packages and individual reservations as we get closer to the event date.
Should the ongoing situation make it such that we will not be able to gather safely in person in November, we will update you as soon as we know. Now more than ever, we deeply appreciate your support through the purchase of journal ads, as your generosity will help our critical relief efforts in response to Covid-19.
Join us as we honor David Marriott for his outstanding contributions to the hospitality industry and celebrate the life-changing work UJA makes possible.
