On Friday, March 31, the Central Florida Hotel & Lodging Association produced the 31st annual Bacchus Bash fundraising event, benefiting the CFHLA Foundation, a nonprofit organization that has supported many Central Florida hospitality students and schools throughout the past 10 years. This year, Bacchus Bash earned more than $108,000 to benefit hospitality education in Central Florida. Held at the Orlando Vineland Premium Outlets, Bacchus Bash is considered “Orlando’s Largest Street Party,” with more than 20,000 attendees and more than 40 vendor booths participating in 2017, including a booth that featured CFHLA partner and parent company of Southwest Orlando Bulletin Kearney Publishing. During the event, attendees sampled delectable foods, specialty drinks and live entertainment from premier hotels and restaurants. 💓
