RI Hospitality Association Hosts Trivia Networking Night

The RI Hospitality Association (RIHA) gathered more than 50 women at O’Brien’s Pub in Newport for a night of networking and trivia on June 6, the second Women in Hospitality event of the year. Trivia host Dennis Hofer, who is also the General Manager of Diego’s Middletown, prepared hospitality trivia specifically for the group and came prepared with over 15 years of restaurant experience. O’Brien’s Pub provided a swag bag full of branded gear and gift cards for the winning team. “Generous sponsors like O’Brien’s Pub, OceanPoint Insurance, DIRECTV for Business National Accounts and Seacoast Sweets made this event possible,” said Traci Dufresne, Director, Education Foundation, RIHA. Attendees brought donations to benefit the Rogers High School Food Pantry, which exists to support students with basic needs.
