BANG (By Appointment Networking Group) Wine Country announces the establishment of the Future Rising Star Hospitality Professionals Scholarship Fund in partnership with the Napa Valley Education Foundation. The scholarship fund is driven by a new BANG initiative to support education and training opportunities for local students looking to flourish as professionals in the hospitality industry.
The annual BANG BBQ Ball will take place at Tres Sabores Winery on Wednesday, July 12th, with a portion of the event's ticket proceeds and sponsorship support donated to the scholarship fund.
"With the number of hospitality employees in Napa and Sonoma County still below pre-pandemic rates, there is a need for qualified professionals in the region. Our local wine industry is a great place for new graduates to start a career, and we want to support them," said Mallory McEligot, Founder of BANG Wine Country. "Thanks to the attendees, supporters, and sponsors of the BANG BBQ Ball, and the partnership of the Napa Valley Education Foundation, BANG will provide more support than ever before to the local hospitality industry."
