“In the recent fundraising event you were extremely entertaining. The crowd of 120 people were simply put, incredibly well entertained by your professionalism, and polished individual. Steve you not only entertained but you were sincerely interested in giving value back to his audience and help out. I would have to say the ultimate compliment was from a guest that was still grieving the death of her husband after many years, and expressed that evening was the first time she had laughed. Thank you for making such a difference.”
