“I wanted to send you a note and let you know what a super job your team did this week. The event showcase I think was superb – I made several contacts for events here in Erie that I think will be well received, and I enjoyed your bartender’s show as well. I know what an expense this is for you to undertake, but for me it is really appreciated!” — Stephanie
