“Thank you so much for working with us to make such a pleasant, successful event.  I’ve been responsible for producing many such events over the years, including a few at TAM in the past, and I have to say I’ve never had an evening go so smoothly — I know what it takes for that to happen, so you’re to be congratulated on doing a great job.  The venue could not be better.  It was just the right size for the event and our group found it classy, beautiful and special.” – Laurie Davenport- Executive Director, Tacoma-Pierce County Bar Foundation, Pro Bono Night 2015.
