(WFRV)- Dig into a night to celebrate the hospitality industry in Wisconsin.

The 6th Annual Hospitality Gala is on Monday, November 13th, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Oshkosh Convention Center.

Enjoy great food options and raise money for scholarships for future Chefs. Half of the money from each ticket will become invested. These endowments can never be spent, so the interest earnings will generate scholarships forever.

Awards will be given for Manager of the Year, Chapter Hero Award, and Outstanding Restaurateur of the Year.
