We cannot thank you enough!” - Sarah George, Freepoint Commodities, LLC

“I cannot thank you enough for all your help in making Tuesday night’s event what it was.

“We know how hard you worked on this and can only say that this success was in large part due to you, your committed colleagues and what I consider to be the most special venue in NYC.

So much fun.’ It was magical, stunning and quintessentially New York.” - Mikey Besch, GOOGLE
