The best in the travel business gathered for an unforgettable night under the stars in Beverly Hills to celebrate the winners of Global Traveler’s 2015 GT Tested Reader Survey awards, Wines on the Wing airline wine competition and the Airline and Hotel of the Year. The sky was the limit for the festive event, as 2015 marked the 12th year for the prestigious awards and GT’s fifth consecutive year hosting the event at The Peninsula Beverly Hills, named Best Individual Hotel in the United States.

To commemorate the special occasion, the awards gala took place on the 5-star hotel’s scenic rooftop, where more than 200 guests enjoyed impeccable weather and fine food and drinks with a backdrop of Los Angeles. Guest of honor Cat Cora, a celebrity chef, restaurateur and author of The New York Times bestseller Cooking As Fast As I Can, appeared on behalf of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society at the celebration, which served as the kick-off for GT’s annual charity auction benefitting LLS.

Cora and Francis X. Gallagher, publisher and CEO, Global Traveler, presented the esteemed winners their awards and urged guests to join in supporting the world’s largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education and patient services by donating travel-related goods for the auction. Incredible airline and hotel stays are up for bid through May 1, with 100 percent of the proceeds supporting the fight to cure blood cancers.

Global Traveler’s GT Tested Reader Survey awards are the most respected in the luxury business travel industry. Winners are named based on the results of an open-ended reader survey.
