28th Annual H.O.T. Challenge Golf Tournament

The Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau (GMCVB) organizes the Hospitality Open Golf Tournament (H.O.T.) to fund scholarships for men and women of African heritage committed to working in the local visitor industry upon their graduation, as well as the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau’s Multicultural & Tourism programs.

The tournament provides a great opportunity to enjoy the renowned golf course at the Miami Beach Golf Club and mingle with golfers of all skill levels – all for a great cause.

All proceeds from the H.O.T. Challenge benefit the Black Hospitality Initiative (BHI) African-American Scholarship Fund. The BHI is a not-for-profit organization that was established in 1991 by the GMCVB to increase and expand the participation by African Americans in Miami-Dade County’s visitor industry.

Now in its 28-year history, the Visitor Industry Human Resource Council (VIC), dba Black Hospitality Initiative (BHI) has awarded more than 450 scholarships and raised more than $3.5 million in scholarship funds and in-kind services. Our outreach programs have reached hundreds of families, providing them with information they need to help their children access college and financial aid to pay for a higher education. Programs also support students already in college, and our Black Hospitality Initiative Talent Development and Job Connection Programs offer employment opportunities and mentoring for students and Alumni. 

Black Hospitality Initiative of Greater Miami (BHI) formerly the Visitor Industry Human Resource Development Council (VIC) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization established in 1991 by the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau (GMCVB) to advance economic participation and open doors of opportunity for African Americans and Blacks of African descent in the Greater Miami Visitor Industry.
