Lutgert’s School of Resort & Hospitality Management received a welcome holiday gift from the Culinary and Hospitality Education Foundation (CHEF) of Southwest Florida: $20,000 in scholarships for students majoring in Resort & Hospitality Administration! The donation is reassuring news for RHA students, many of whom are putting themselves through school by working in an industry which has been especially devastated by Covid-related shutdowns and restrictions.

CHEF has been raising scholarship funds for resort and hospitality majors since 2001, helping more than 60 FGCU students earn their degrees. Tickets for their next fundraising event, a culinary chef showdown and auction, can be purchased at
