We are excited to announce the winners of the ORHMA Simcoe County Region Hospitality Awards Gala!  This is Simcoe County's 7th year of bringing together and celebrating some of the outstanding hospitality and tourism professionals here in Simcoe County. 

As part of the ORHMA's commitment to professional development, our goal is to raise scholarship funds that will directly support students in
