“We did it! On behalf of the James Beard Foundation I wanted to extend my sincere thanks to you for being such an important member of our TASTE AMERICA team who produced such an amazing weekend events of September 28-29.

As you know, TASTE AMERICA is the Foundation’s first national food festival promoting great American cuisine in 20 cities across the country. We were thrilled by the response from guests who attended the various benefit dinners, and we were delighted with the media coverage we received from local, regional and national press. We have received valuable feedback from our presenting sponsors, and we are excited and encouraged by their responses.

When TASTE AMERICA was conceived our goal was to reach out, inspire and educate foodies of all ages about the bounty and diversity of American cuisine. Needless to say, we owe so much of the program’s national success to all of our local partners for executing truly unique events in their cities.”

On behalf of Judd, myself and my family I wanted to thank you for all of your assistance with our wedding reception in the fall. I am certain that working with us (the distance, little face time in Pittsburgh and other particularities) must have been a bit like herding cats! However, we were delighted with how everything turned out and will always remember that beautiful evening. We are really appreciative of all of your efforts.”

Sara Malakoff, Ph.D and Judson Horn

My thanks again to you for playing such a key role in making the dinner a huge success and a most memorable occasion—you are in the business of making memories and memorializing dreams— good business to be in.”

Thomson, Rhodes & Cowie, P.C.

Thank you so much for helping us with our Grand Opening and making it a huge success! The designers have been calling us and saying what a great time they had and how good the opportunity was for them to raise awareness of their lines in our market. Barb was absolutely thrilled with the party. She now wants to do a big party once a year, so you know we will be calling you! Thanks again for taking care of everything!”
