Hilton Melbourne Rialto Supporting EFSC Foundation
February 28, 2017 - The Hilton Melbourne Rialto Place has become the official host hotel for Eastern Florida State College as a corporate partner of the EFSC Foundation, the organization that funds student scholarships.
May 24-26, the newly renovated, upscale hotel will be the site of the Council of Business Affairs Spring Conference, hosted by Eastern Florida State College. The three-day event will include leading officials from the 28-member Florida College System.
In February 2018, the college will host the Florida Undergraduate Research Conference at EFSC's Melbourne Campus, with attendees from around the state staying at the Hilton as the event's host hotel.
The Hilton Melbourne Rialto Place also is playing a direct role supporting the EFSC Foundation, providing matching funds for such Foundation scholarship programs as Dream Makers, Helios and others that help students pay for their education.
The hotel, located in the heart of Melbourne near the International Airport, also offers reduced rates for Eastern Florida students, staff and faculty, including guests visiting for graduation ceremonies at the King Center.
“We’re very grateful to the Hilton and its great staff for everything they do to help our students attend Eastern Florida,” said Foundation Director Jennie Kriete. “They’re making an important difference in peoples’ lives.”
