The Hospitality Industry Legislative Galas

One of Jack Gordon's first actions as the Executive V.P. of the Restaurant Association was to hold a "Legislative Gala" the evening before the opening of the Washington State Legislature. Held in Seattle finest hotels, starting with the Olympic Hotel, the evenings featured fine food and wines as well as entertainment.
