Dear Russ,
My God you guys are sensational. I just don’t know who else in Canada can produce and deliver the first class catering that D&D does. You are simply the best!

As I walked one of the guests in to the event this year, Andre Picard from the Globe and Mail, he mentioned that one of the reasons that he looks forward to the Canada Gairdner Awards is the food. And while I should take exception to that being a reason to attend our event, I don’t. It is one of the largest compliments that we could receive. No “Rubber Chicken” for us, just fabulous first class cuisine! Your talented chefs, led by Vel Sivapragasam, are sheer geniuses.

Increasing the numbers, with the addition of the Rotunda seating, had me a little worried this year given our tight timelines, but it was needless. Your incredible service staff, led by Steven Creelman, delivered dinner in mere minutes and did it with a grace and style that is unrivaled.

Finally Russ, I would like to thank you for your incredible support over the past several months. We have been doing this event together for 6 years and it simply wouldn’t happen without your professionalism, your oversight, your creative talents and your keen eye for detail. You are such a pleasure to work with.

On behalf of WaterCooler and my client The Gairdner Foundation, I would like to thank you and your entire team for making our event such a success. I look forward to working with you all again very soon.
Cheers
Anne Avery
President, WaterCooler Inc.
