Annual Charity Golf Tournament

The Hotel Council’s Annual Golf Tournament started in 1981 for members and friends to help raise funds for students in Bay Area hospitality programs.

Each year, the Golf Planning Committee creates a full day of golfing, contests, and silent and live auctions. We hope you join us each year for this day of camaraderie and philanthropy.

Hotel and Restaurant Foundation

The Hotel Council Annual Charity Golf Tournament and Auction serves as a fundraiser for the Hotel and Restaurant Foundation’s (HARF) scholarships for Bay Area hospitality students. Through HARF, the Hotel Council created the Robert Begley Leadership Fund, in honor of the Hotel Council’s founder. Since 2006, the Hotel Council has raised over $100,000 and awarded over 20 scholarships through HARF.

The Economic Forecasting Seminar is a great event as it brings together experts on several different relevant topics in one place. I look forward to this event each year knowing it will arm me and my team with helpful information that we need to plan for the next year and stay tuned in to what is impacting all hotels in the market.
