Dear Mr. Rose,
You and your ensemble were simply fabulous as you entertained the crowd at our annual fund raising event, the Casablanca Ball, on October 3, 1998. The crowd loved your sound and certainly loved your style. I had many of our patrons tell me afterward how much they enjoyed dancing to your music.
I want to thank you for saving the dinner portion of the evening by offering to play while the entree was delayed. The excitement of the evening did not even skip a beat with you and your crew entertaining everyone. I do not even think that anyone noticed the delay.
I can't say enough wonderful things about you all. The success of the event will directly help hundreds of homeless children have quality programs through all of next year. For them, I would like to say thank you.
