Hospitality Uncorked, hosted by Cal Poly Pomona’s Collins College of Hospitality Management and its Board of Advisors, is a celebration of the vibrant social and cultural life that has made hospitality the No. 1 industry. The night is believed to be the single largest toast to the industry in the State of California. This lavish event raises over half a million dollars and is generously supported by the college’s industry partners. Funds are raised for student scholarships to help make dreams come true.


What Collins College is doing for its students, providing great career opportunities, is a blessing for all of us. Countless personal stories are inspiring of how they help so many succeed in their chosen field. We come here to raise money for such a great cause, such a great school, and to really give back to our industry.
