HospitaBull 2020 postponed


Dear Friends,

Thank you for registering for USF Sarasota Manatee’s HospitaBull Evening, scheduled for Tuesday, March 24. Greatly, we appreciate your support and ongoing interest, as this is always a wonderful event. However, due to concerns of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), all scheduled public events organized by each of the three USF Campuses are temporarily postponed. While we’re disappointed, we must be proactive in protecting the health of our students and members of the community.

Additionally, the State University System of Florida issued a mandate yesterday, (March 11, 2020), that all universities within the system transition from in-person class instruction to remote instruction. Therefore, the USF Sarasota-Manatee campus is temporarily transitioning all in-person classes to online learning, starting Monday, March 23 (following spring break) and continuing through Monday, April 6. This also means that our hospitality students would not be available for the event, and they are the principals leading this activity.

At this time, we are no longer accepting table and ticket requests. If you have already purchased a table or individual tickets, we will hold your table or ticket, until the new date is announced. Or, we will gladly provide a refund. Simply contact Lee Williams at leewilliam@sar.usf.edu or 941-359-4582 or Pam Gleason at pjg@sar.usf.edu or 941-359-4603 for reimbursement. And, when a new date is confirmed, we will let you know!
