Thank you to the Powered by Professionals team for the outstanding job you did for the NPF with our Cocktails for a Cure event. The results speak for themselves: The energy in the room, the funds raised, the sense of community we created for the NPF. Our two goals – to build the framework for a chapter in NY and our fundraising target – were both exceeded by incredibly large margins. Thank you again for all of your hard work.

– Joe Titlebaum, Chairman, Board of Directors, National Pancreas Foundation

Just a quick note to express our thanks for all of your efforts in making last night a very big success. We were so impressed with your professionalism, attention to detail and commitment to the Volunteer Lawyers Project. We had very high expectations for the event, and you surpassed them all!
