Caz and crew-

Great job at the Botanic Gardens event last week; meant to get to you earlier and let you know how fantastic it all went. Very generous of you and your entertainers to donate all of your tips that you all received for song requests back, to our foundation. Folks will be talking about this for a long time.

Hope we can work together again soon. Linda Dee says hello.

Best regards,
