”Dear Jerry

I can't tell you how impressed I was with the staff that you sent to my event, a Flamingo retirement party at Winnetka Congregational Church on Sunday, Oct 6th. The ladies were absolutely outstanding: they were friendly, personable and hardworking; they were so attentive to our guests; they took initiative to do things; they were amazing and efficient on cleanup; very professional; and absolutely delightful to work with (we received many compliments about their skills)!

Thank you so much for providing us such a wonderful staff, it made our event go so much more smoothly!

My deepest appreciation to That Special Event, and the ladies!”

”Jerry and Gia

Oh my gosh! What a fabulous weekend. I have gotten endless calls and texts about Friday and Sunday. You both as well as your team went above and beyond and I know I threw a lot on you both and neither of you flinched or said no ever. Even having people coming two hours before to pick Up the liquor! Every one commented that they would like their daughter’s weddings to look like our yard did Friday. It was magnificent. You have a way of coming in and taking over but in an non intrusive way. You’re just calm and get things done. Every event you have done for me has topped the previous. Please pass our sincere thank you to your entire team from Friday and Sunday.

So thank you all again. So grateful.”

”Jerry, Gia and the rest of the team at That Special Event made our dream wedding a reality. They both had expert knowledge of our venue and gave us suggestions to help make the evening flow well. They offer competetive prices on rentals as well as staff and were always so attentive to requests. They were very responsive, organized and punctual on our day. I highly recommend them for any event, big or small.”
