This year’s Wine & Cheese Experience is dedicated to our beloved Brother Sylvester “Sly” Taylor who passed away in 2021.
Brother Taylor had over 40 years of experience in the Hospitality Industry, with 28 of those years spent at Walt Disney World Resort in Hospitality. His most rewarding roles were Certified Meeting Planner and Wine Sommelier in Convention Services.
He brought his passion for hospitality and his love for wine to the Wine & Cheese Experience as the chair of this event for multiple years.
To honor Sly, we are partnering with his family to award a scholarship in his honor to a student pursuing a career in hospitality.
