The annual ORHMA London Hospitality Awards Gala is an opportunity to bring together and formally recognize the great hospitality and tourism professionals in the London region.
As part of ORHMA’s commitment to professional development, the goal is to raise scholarship funds that will directly support students in Fanshawe College’s School of Tourism and Hospitality. This year, ORHMA London regional chair Stacy King presented a cheque for $1,000 to Fanshawe.
