"I would like to convey my sincere thanks for your excellent work at the Gala Ball. It is never an easy gig to MC an event & you managed this so well while exuding such grace and professionalism. I really appreciated how you took the time to meet with all the presenters.Most importantly, your actions, positive attitude & attention to detail projected the image that AICWA was after. You nailed it!"
