“I just wanted to say thank you so much for everything before, during and after our gala last Saturday.  Our experience with your staff (and with you) throughout the entire process was amazing…We especially appreciate the food as well, the tasting table was a huge hit and I personally know the arepa’s were delicious!  In addition, Chris was an amazing event manager, Ward was a true mixologist and Diego had that kitchen working like a well-oiled machine. And of course, who doesn’t love Ellen!??  She practically became my therapist the last few days.

We met our goal and raised DOUBLE last year with $40k and we also broke a record: the most money raised from any NYC YP event ever!!

We really appreciate your support and going above and beyond to help us raise money for a cause so close to home for all of us…this group is at the beginning stages of really creating something that can grow into a huge presence with the young professional audience and every bit helps tremendously.”

“I cannot say enough great things about Scott Parrish and team at Thomas Preti Events to Savor. My colleague and I were tasked with planning our holiday party a mere 3 weeks prior to the party and were in a major budget and time crunch to execute everything. After questionable interactions with other caterers, Scott and team came in to save the day! He and his entire team were incredibly professional, responsive, and attentive both during the planning of the event and night of. For a group of notoriously difficult people, we received nothing but rave reviews on the quality of the food, service and thought put into the entire presentation. All of the food was FANTASTIC and the presentation beautiful. I would use Scott and team again in a heartbeat for any upcoming event!”

-Ashley H. – New York City

“I just wanted to say thank you so much for helping us make our event in New York such a success. You guys were brilliant – you understood our vision, you were flexible with our MANY changes and requests, your service staff were excellent and your food tasted amazing. Our crew said it was the best quality food they’ve ever had on an event. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you and use you again.”
