The primary foundation of the hospitality industry is built upon customer service, an element shared by each segment of the hospitality business. And those within the hospitality industry wear many hats and have many faces. They are restaurant managers, bartenders, chefs, servers and more. And they are also a community. Sometimes even a family, of sorts. Few exude this sense of community and family quite like GBOD Hospitality Group.
The earthquake that hit Mexico City has killed at least 273 people and left the area in ruins. Collapsed buildings, lost homes, trapped people…our thoughts are with the people of Mexico.

Every dollar donated will go to LOCAL relief organizations – At El Chingon, they believe it’s very important to give directly to the source. Your donations will go to Central Mexico organizations that are providing relief and support to the area.
In addition to online donations, El Chingon is also donating funds from the purchase of their line of custom El Chingon merchandise to the Earthquake Relief effort. Head in today and pick out some a new outfit that you can feel good about!

The Friends of Scott Foundation is a local non-profit organization that was founded in memory of Scott Delgadillo, who lost his life to childhood cancer more than 11 years ago.

Their biggest event of the year is not a fundraiser but instead a carefree evening of dancing and revelry specifically for the children and young adults they serve. The Unforgettable Prom is the Friends of Scott's signature program, and for more than a decade the organization has provided local teens with cancer, many who may not have had the opportunity to attend their own school dances, with their own special prom event.
