The RI Hospitality Association (RIHA) recently honored two North Kingstown hospitality professionals at its “Stars of the Industry” Annual Meeting and Awards Ceremony at the Rhode Island Convention Center.
The Stars of the Industry Awards recognize the outstanding achievements of members of the hospitality, foodservice and tourism industries. Award recipients were chosen not only for their dedication and contributions to their careers, but for their involvement in their local communities.
“It is with great honor that I congratulate this year’s Stars of the Industry winners for all their incredible accomplishments,” said Dale J. Venturini, President and CEO of RIHA. “With more than 63,000 Rhode Islanders working in the hospitality industry, it is important to take the time to recognize all of their hard work. It is with their dedication that the hospitality industry continues to be a cornerstone of the state’s economy.”
