To each and every one of our industry colleagues - THANK YOU! Your unwavering support of SITE SoCal has not gone unnoticed. We can’t wait to be together and reunite in-person. Here’s to you, a fantastic end of year celebration, and a very happy and joyous holiday season!

Now more than ever, we need to support each other and our industry. Due to the impact COVID has had on our industry, we have shifted away from local grassroots charities this year to honor our own Hospitality Heroes.

Our Mission: The Above and Beyond Foundation recognizes, rewards and supports outstanding individuals employed on the front lines of the hospitality industry by providing awards and grants to help them attain their personal and professional goals.

Our Core Values: We reward individuals that support our core values:

  • Hard Working
  • Dedicated
  • Passionate
  • Ethical
  • Customer-Centric
  • Team Player
The Above and Beyond Foundation

The Heroes of Hospitality Award is awarded to front-line workers that demonstrate our core values and embody the heart of hospitality through an extraordinary single act of service that is truly ‘Above and Beyond.’

We need your help to nominate and recognize those in our industry that deserve to be recognized.

Please Nominate Here.
