HFTP Helps 2018 — Louisville
Traditionally, the HFTP Helps program supports a local charity located in the Annual Convention's host city. To follow tradition, the money raised at this year's event for the HFTP Scholarship will be directed to area hospitality, finance and technology centered education programs overseen by NAF.
NAF is a national network of education, business, and community leaders who work together to ensure high school students are college, career and future ready.
