"Dear Jennifer, it was great to work with you again this year. Thank you so much for helping to make our L2L-2008 Graduation Luncheon another successful event. I really appreciated your patience and flexibility in the pre-planning process — when locations and plans changed frequently. Your foresight and knowledge of our previous events made this year's organization and planning flow smoothly and effortlessly. Please extend my thanks and appreciation to all the Faculty Club staff that helped to make our luncheon a lovely event. They did a fabulous job! The wait staff was extremely friendly, gracious and hospitable throughout the day; the food was excellent with a beautiful presentation — our thanks to Chef Mark for serving a delicious meal and for accommodating our special dietary needs!"
Kimberly Nyce, MIT Human Resources
"Thank you from the New England Section of SNAME. Your staff did a wonderful job, from the planning to the execution last night. I was particularly impressed with how many times I was asked if there was anything else they could do for us, from the moment we arrived until we took down the A/V screen at the end of the evening. We had a van load of students arrive late, after we had already started eating, and they were quickly seated and served. Their faculty advisor arrived even later, and he was also promptly attended to. Please pass on my compliments to your dining room staff, they were all polite and courteous, and my compliments to the kitchen for turning out delicious and such beautifully plated meals. We'll be back!"
Dave Herbein, SNAME, New England Section Programs
"Dear Robert and Colby, thank you so much for the cookies with the logo — what a surprise! Dinner was perfect — please let the chef know that it was delicious and all plates were empty. The staff was friendly and efficient. You are the best!"
Renata G. Bushko, Director, Future of Health Technology Institute
About Our Full-Service Catering
“Dear Colby - Sorry for the delay in sending this note. It has been a bit hectic with our move. This is a special note of thanks for the superb service provided by your team assisting with the successful Koch Institute Leadership Council meeting on November 4th in the Media Lab Silverman Skyline and Winter Garden Rooms. Due to a misunderstanding with the event coordinator at the Media Lab, the room was barren when I arrived and the rugs were being dried from overnight cleaning. Your entire team worked very hard to make an extremely stressful situation into the setting that I wanted for my meeting. They assisted in arranging tables and chairs in the arrangement that I needed for the meeting.
Catering Manager Francisco Arellano, Waitstaff Leo Deleon, and Steward Jimmy Hagan all went above and beyond to make the meeting a success. I truly appreciate all of their work.
Thank you too for all of your assistance with our events on Wednesday and Thursday, November 3rd and 4th.”
Mary F. Heckbert, Office of the Executive Director, David H. Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research, MIT - November 2010
"Thank you very much for a wonderful event today. Everything went perfectly and your menu really hit the spot in terms of tone, efficiency, and, of course, taste! I really appreciated your creative suggestions this year, given the current climate. Please pass my thanks along to Nina and your entire staff for their stellar service. I look forward to another great event next year. All best,"
Kande Culver, MIT Excellence Awards (reception for 450+ guests in Kresge)
"Dear Nina and Robert, just a quick but heartfelt note to express our appreciation for your efforts on Monday evening when we hosted our benefactors from Legatum at Gray House. It was a very special evening indeed, and certainly enhanced by the fine cuisine, excellent wine selection, and professional presentation and service. Please know that my colleagues and I are most grateful for a job superbly done! With thanks and best wishes,"
Jack Oldham, Director, MIT Foundation Relations
"On behalf of Donald, myself, and the entire EDP staff please thank Nina, Sharon, Lindsay, Andrew, Jillian, Leo, and all of your wonderful staff who helped with our program and made our jobs so much easier this week. Working with your staff was truly a delight; we were well taken care of and the level of customer service was excellent. Jennifer and Joan, I would like to thank you personally for your flexibility to deal with our ever changing needs. It was a pleasure working with both of you and I look forward to working with you again in the future."
