As most of you may know, I have recently started my final year at York College of Pennsylvania and will be graduating with a Bachelor's degree in Hospitality Management this coming spring. I have recently learned about a wonderful opportunity that my school is offering for a group of students to travel to Italy near the end of February 2018. This trip is part of a class they will be offering next semester that focuses on Sports and Entertainment in Italy. Being a hospitality major, and based on my interests in the entertainment industry, this trip is right up my alley. I also have never traveled out of the country and would love to have the opportunity to broaden my perspective of the world before I graduate from college. This trip would have us spending 5 days in Rome and 3 days in Milan. During this time, we would be touring and getting a behind the scenes look at popular sports and entertainment venues in Italy and even get to attend a soccer game at the San Siro Stadium. Along with course related activities we would take the time to visit the "Must Sees" of Italy including the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, Vatican Museum, and more. I believe that this could truly be a life changing opportunity.
The one obstacle that stands in my way is the high cost of traveling abroad. The total cost is $3,200 which includes round trip air travel, hotel accommodations, admission fees, all breakfasts, 2 dinners, insurance, and ground transportation. While this is a great packaged deal, I cannot manage to pay for this trip on my own. I need to make a $500 depoit on October 30th, 2017, to claim my spot. I will need to have raised a good portion of the funds by this time so that I know I can afford to pay for the rest of the trip.
I will be the first to acknowledge that I have an amazing support group of friends and family. While it is unlike me to ask for help, I know I cannot do this without you. Any size donation would be greatly apperciated. Thank you all for your continued support. Now let's get me to Italy!
