The Advanced Food & Beverage Class dining series.
Watch this short video to see and hear what our dining series experiences are all about.
During the academic year, Advanced Food and Beverage students majoring in Hospitality Management delight the University community and beyond with dining experience. The "Dinner" series is an opportunity for students to apply fundamentals learned through classes in the Hospitality Management Program, and give the students real-world, hands-on experience. Students are responsible, with instructional guidance from faculty, for all aspects of the event: planning and preparing the menu, selling and marketing the event, managing finances, and creating an enjoyable night for all who attend.
Through the help of all generous sponsors, we are able to present a successful event to showcase our passion for the hospitality industry. Given the stability from such kind donors, we have the ability to turn the skills that have been acquired through our time in the Hospitality Management Program at the University of New Hampshire into a tangible event for everyone to enjoy. If you choose to extend a hand, financially, the team will graciously add your company, or personal, name to our advertised list of sponsors and put it toward enhancing the education of our students. If you graciously choose to sponsor our event, please follow the “BUY TICKET” tab above and follow the link to purchase a ticket. Once registered, follow the “Sponsorship Only” tab to complete the donation.
Once the sponsorship has been completed, it would be our pleasure to feature a logo, personal or company title on a poster at the dinner for all guests to see. Please reach out to our team with any questions. Again, we truly appreciate all the continued support, and we sincerely thank you!
