    The amazing Santa Clara Marriott welcomes us to enjoy an amazing dinner, plus complimentary beer and wine, for our Annual Best of the Industry Awards Dinner! Not only will we be honoring our Best of the Industry Award Winners, but we are also excited to announce that we will have a fabulous silent auction and raffle with some amazing prizes, so be sure to purchase some raffle tickets to get in on the action! We will be donating a portion of our proceeds to the SEARCH Foundation, who provide financial help for event, meetings, catering and hospitality professionals in crisis, and we are thrilled to be able to support them. We can't wait to celebrate our annual "Best of the Industry" Awards and induct our new Board of Directors for 2019 and we hope you'll join us!
