“We really appreciated the hard work of you and your staff last night. Several of us took note that even many of the support staff went out of their way to introduce themselves and make sure we were taken care of. It left a very good impression, of course. We were very pleased with the event overall—I think you can look forward to Kathy contacting you at some point about a date for next year.”
-Dustin Grovemiller, Capital Contact
I just wanted to take a minute and thank you for putting together such a fantastic event! Everything ran smoothly from the time we entered (about 11:15am) until the time we left. It was so organized! There was plenty of room to roam freely and overall very well put together! Awesome job! Thanks so much!
