"When the smoke lifts, the music fades and the lights come up,
everybody will continue to talk about what an amazing week that took
place in sleepy little Austin, MN. Unfortunately you'll likely never
receive all your just dues for everything you helped coordinate but for
those of us on the inside, we all know it wouldn't have been possible without you and your team.You provided that rock of support &
stability. Again, thank you so much for all the efforts you've provided
and HAPPY 125TH!!!"
-Scott Nemec, Hormel Foods
"I thought this year was the BEST ever!!! I loved the artist, loved the different evening flow with the Live Auction after dinner, the décor in the room was just enough and not over the top, and the Band was terrific!! I appreciate your expertise and how you make each GALA experience unique."
-Christa Getchell, CFRE-President, Park Nicollet Foundation
"Coleman Mason is utterly fearless (and infinitely fabulous!). Cookie and Char agreed to join us in taking on a monstrous project with a nearly impossible timeline. Their enthusiasm and attention to detail never waned from start to finish, and they accomplished what we were not even sure was possible, all without batting an eye. Their collaborative spirit, flawless execution and attention to even the seemingly minute details are what makes them one of a kind. We could not have pulled this off without them, and we are eternally grateful."
-Julieann Lanou, FAME
"Well you have done it again- another stellar event from Coleman Mason! Thank you so much for you guidance, expertise, and especially your onsite support. This event was the most successfully run that we can remember and that's a huge testament. We can't thank you enough for your hard work!
-Catherine Davies, Chorus America

- Darin Knapp, Senior Vice President, Knutson Construction
"After thirty years of doing shows (I’m tired!- just kidding), sometimes I get surprised by working with people who treat me in a completely professional, friendly and helpful manner. Char and Cookie did that for me and are real pros. I highly recommend them and look forward to working with them again. Plus, the check didn’t bounce!”

"We’ve been getting so many nice compliments about last night. Thank you for all you did to make the evening a warm, enjoyable, intimate, and memorable event for our guests. The venue looked beautiful; the décor was stunning. We were blown away by how quickly the room was transformed into our own Hogwarts. And the biggest success was turning the floor plan around in order to accommodate more people and improve the site lines. Thanks for figuring that out, alleviating our worries, and adding your considerable expertise, judgment, and professionalism. It was a pleasure working with you both."

“Just a quick note to thank you and your team for the excellent job you did on the three 50th Anniversary events. I know the timeline was short, the money was tight and the complications were many, but none of that was evident to our guests. We have received many compliments from our employees, our major donors, and members of the public. We make quality television. You manage quality events. Together our teams showcased them both.”
