"I want to thank you for the wonderful work you did for our Humanitarian Dinner last evening. I had a vision of what the evening would be... and you made it a reality. As we know, "it takes a village" to make these events work, and I am electing you all to the village council for the support and execution for this dinner! Your professionalism and good spirits made it a delight and I deeply appreciate everything you did to make the evening a success. As this was my first dinner in a new job, the pressure was particularly intense, and knowing you "had my back" is why I was able to sleep that last week! I have received many accolade from many community leaders, indicating that our dinner was one of the best such events they have ever attended. It worked because I had a great committee, a superb catering staff... and YOU!"
