In what has become an annual tradition, hotel executives from across the country were treated to an intimate performance by a BMI singer-songwriter at the 29th annual American Hotel & Lodging Association Educational Foundation (AH&LAEF) Golf Classic Dinner, held at The Pinehurst Resort in North Carolina. This year’s featured entertainer was Brendan James, who performed “Bring My Love Home,” along with other songs off his newest release, The Howl, at the August 29 event.

For more than 60 years, the American Hotel & Lodging Association Educational Foundation (AH&LAEF) has been the primary source of financial support for industry-related scholarships and research. In recent years, its mandate has expanded to include funding to launch and maintain school-to-career and workforce development initiatives in order to attract and train more employees to the hotel and lodging industry.
