Holiday Greetings From HRG
Well, we just checked our calendars and realized that 2017 is about to come to a close. It has been a great year for Hospitality Resource Group, as we have enjoyed working with our strategic partners to serve clients and grow all three of our businesses - event management, customized training, and marketing.
This year, we expanded our roster of clients across a range of industries and organizations, developing partnerships with small businesses, nonprofits and corporations, including New York Medical College, Avalon Bay, Arc of Westchester, Volunteer NY!, and the Westchester Community Foundation to name a few. 

Beyond our own success, we were honored to support our nonprofit community, and hope you join us in saluting their contributions, particularly at this time of year.  Nothing is more important than the people who volunteer to lend a helping hand to bring joy to so many who live among us, during the holidays and throughout the year.
And as we gather with our family and friends to celebrate the holiday season, all of us here at HRG wish you and those you care most about - all the best for a peaceful and joyous holiday season!

So before we close the books on 2017, we thought you may enjoy a few recipes from our friends at Caperberry Events, and invite you to  visit our HRG Facebook page   to see photos of our annual  You are 'Cause' for Celebration event. Please join us in recognizing the area not-for-profit community and all the people who work so hard to make this such a great place to work and live.   
From all of us at HRG, we wish you a very happy holiday season!
