The Greater New Orleans Hotel & Lodging Association Hospitality Education Foundation is donating $25,000 to the University of New Orleans’ Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism Foundation to support students pursuing the hospitality career path.

The association plans to announce the donation at Lakewood Golf Club on Tuesday morning. The check presentation and donation run in conjunction with the 25th annual Tourism Tee-Off Golf Tournament, which is the association’s primary funding source.

The association, which is an educational nonprofit, awards college scholarships to high school students interested in pursuing careers within hospitality and supports the local student chapter of the American Hotel & Lodging Association at UNO.
