Hard Rock Cafe Sponsors 9th Annual ?Rock the Foundation? Event   The National Tourism Foundation celebrated nine years of partnership with Hard Rock Cafe when the organization raised more than $32,000 at its annual ?Rock The Foundation? party. The celebration was held on Sunday, Nov. 10, during the 2005 NTA Annual Convention in Los Angeles .

The highly anticipated ?Rock The Foundation? party brought 800-plus NTA members to Hard Rock Cafe at Universal Studios CityWalk to enjoy 70?s & 80?s tunes from the band Bootie Quake. All proceeds raised at the annual event will benefit the existing educational programs developed by the Foundation. These educational programs include college scholarships for students pursuing a career in the travel and tourism industry, internships, Foundation research and research grants.?

Hard Rock Cafe is honored to serve as an ongoing partner with the National Tourism Foundation,? stated Katie Clements, Hard Rock Cafe Director of Sales. ?The growth of the travel and tourism industry is so valuable to our company, and we are confident we are supporting its future by contributing to such a worthy cause as the Foundation.?

The Foundation is so appreciative of the support we have received from Hard Rock Cafe over the past nine years,? said National Tourism Foundation Executive Director Randy Fievash. ?We realize the value of our partnership with their nationwide team and hope we can extend the relationship for years to come. We certainly could not have raised more than $32,000 without their help.?
