My name is Carly Martin and I am a senior in Event Management from Dothan, Alabama. I decided to pursue a degree in Hospitality and Event Planning after I realized my passion for serving others while on mission trips to Nicaragua and Haiti. I wanted to be able to give people the experience of a lifetime, and memories that they would never forget. During my time at Auburn I have had the wonderful opportunity to get first-hand experience at how The Hospitality Gala can truly change lives. In May of 2018, I was able to visit the beautiful California wine country thanks to wonderful donors, and that is where I realized my passion and love for wine. Planning The Hospitality Gala has been eye-opening to the people who give so much to the students without ever asking for anything in return. I love that in planning this gala, I get to return the favor and help create a night to remember for the amazing guests that help to better our program year after year.
