With our magnificent biannual International Gala Event comes corporate social responsibility, which the HTMi student body highly value. This year we are supporting the worthy The “Rainforest Alliance”. We decided to support this charity, as we strongly believe that in times like this we need to focus on the future by standing up together as humankind and fight against issues such as climate change and deforestation. This charity focuses mainly on fighting deforestation and making the rainforest a more sustainable place. With that comes saving endangered animals, setting up sustainable farms as well as involving and educating local communities.

The marketing department for the International Gala Event kicked this semester’s charity initiatives off with a very charming Valentine’s Dinner and widely supported by the HTMi student body. The culinary team created a delicious four-course dinner menu, which included a beautiful Swan Lake dessert created by our amazing Baking & Pastry students. Overall the candlelight dinner was a grand success.

Obviously, the marketing team will not stop here. Many more fantastic initiatives and fundraisers will be held during the semester. Such as casual days, pizza sales and the ever popular cupcakes sale. Posters will be put on the screen and announcements will be made in the Alpine restaurant.

On behalf of the Higher Diploma Marketing Team we would hereby like to thank all of the HTMi students and staff for their strong support. We are especially grateful to Chef Andy Kurfürst and his team for their help with the Valentine’s Dinner,  Michele Schuster for her help in the restaurant.
