The Love of Friends team, would like to take the opportunity to thank all of the generous and wonderful people and businesses that are helping to make February 14, 2012, the best Valentine’s Day ever.
First of all, we would like to thank Bakery Square. Bakery Square is providing us with a fantastic space for us to eat, drink, and be merry with hundreds of our closest friends while admiring local art and music. We are so excited to be in such a fun space this year.
Next, HUGE thank you to Revive Marketing Group. The folks at Revive have been instrumental in co-producing this event with us. Recommending vendors, coaching us on our outreach, and generally keeping us from the “I am actually losing my mind” feeling that so often accompanies event planning. Gina, Eileen, and Jack- thank you for all of your help!
FUZE Beverages are graciously acting as an in kind sponsor sending us delicious beverages to share with our friends.
We are so thankful for our talented friends who will be providing music for this year’s party!
