74 Good friends and clients of The Virginia Values You Team turned out on Saturday, Oct. 24, for our second annual Client Appreciation Event. It was a smokin’ good time of delicious Barbecued Brisket prepared by my son, John Pierce, of Dallas; Creamy Jalapeno Corn Casserole, Smokey Bean Casserole, and beer, wine and soft drinks in the best of company. Plus pies and s’mores, galore by the roaring fire in the Legacy Hills Park Pavilion in Sun City.
Guests brought a donation of canned goods or non-perishable grocery items for The Caring Place in Georgetown, one of our favorite charities. We raised $133 in cash and 66 pounds of food, which we delivered to The Caring Place.
Drawings for door prizes were provided by generous friends including:
- American Home Shield
- Fish City Grill
- Gracy Title
- Gumbo’s North
- It’s 2 Much Stuff
- Meek’s Family Chem-Dry
- Palace Theatre
- Quality Real Estate Inspections
- Sid Frost, Author
- Vitalogy Skincare
After the evening, my email box was inundated with compliments and thank you messages. Here are a few excerpts:
“Virginia, thank you so much for such a lovely party. Despite the rain it was a fun gathering and I so enjoyed the name game we played and got to meet a lot of people as well as see folks we hadn’t seen in a while.”
“Had a great time at your gathering – met a few new people, loved the food, and even got a door prize. Life is good! Thanks.”
“Tim and I enjoyed your BBQ dinner and meeting your family, friends and clients. So nice of your family to be 100% involved in the preparation and serving of the delicious food to support you. You did a nice job of “staging” with the autumn table decorations. The S’mores by the blazing fireplace was a nice finale’ to the evening.”
“The ambiance at the Legacy Hills Pavilion with the fall decorations and blazing fire in the fireplace set such a warm, inviting atmosphere and the food was delicious including your son’s succulent brisket. You are truly amazing – very thoughtful with many special touches for a most enjoyable evening.”
