2016 GPHA Stars of the Industry Awards
What an amazing evening at GPHA’s 2016 Stars of the Industry Awards Dinner held on Thursday, December 1 at the Sheraton Society Hill! We recognized 78 hospitality workers, truly the best of the best, for their accomplishments and dedication. A signature cocktail was provided by Goila Vodka and the Sheraton Society Hill hosted a plethora of hors d’oeuvre’s during the reception and a delicious dinner. Choice Party Linens provided white and silver glimmer linens, Hoffman Design Group centering the tables with white hydrangea and exceptional event lighting by PSAV.
