HIT Scotland Plans Christmas Golden Ball

Date: 18/11/2010


The Hospitality Industry Trust (HIT) Scotland is throwing a stylish charity Golden Ball in Glasgow on 2nd December

The HIT Scotland Christmas party brings together the hospitality industry and related professions for a night of great food and entertainment before the busy festive period. Around 300 guests are expected to attend the event in the city's newly refurbished Grand Central Hotel.

The hotel's executive chef James Murphy will be creating the exciting menu for guests. He will be joined by a team from Gleneagles who are providing the desert. Entertainment for the evening will be provided by Jim McMail and The Fraternity, who will be performing a set of classic Vegas songs and modern swing. They will be followed by DJ Bobby Coates.

All money raised from the event will support the HIT Scotland Scholarship programme. This year, HIT Scotland is looking to award around 100 scholarships to students and talented people at all levels in the industry.

Previous scholars have gone behind the scenes of Michelin-starred kitchens, been awarded places at Ivy League Cornell University and at Europe's top hospitality school. Other placements include the Disney Institute in Florida and six-star resorts in Dubai.

Stephen Murphy, chair of the Event Committee, said; "Christmas is one of the busiest times of the year for the hospitality industry. Everyone deserves a break and the Golden Ball will get them in the right frame of mind for the festive season."

Only a couple of tables remain for the event. Tickets are priced at £68 and are available from http://www.hitscotland.org.
