    “I wanted to give a heart-felt thank you for organizing such a unique and exceptional event. I felt special from the moment I was invited to attend and the experience was simply something money could not buy. As an incentive planner these are 2 concepts I try to create for all of our attendees so it was so nice to feel that commitment as an attendee. I really enjoyed all the entire program but especially seeing old friends and meeting new ones.”

Your attention to detail did not go unnoticed. Plus a bonus in the amount of money raised for Doc and Wine to Water is unbelievable and spoke to your passion as well as others.”
