Dear Ms. Addivinola 

On behalf of Michael's cause we would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your support of Michael's cause since our inceptions in 2011. 

Dating back to March 2012 where our first dinner gala was at The Vanderbilt as South Beach right through to a recent Disco Night at the Grand Oaks Country Club in June 2023.

Your support to our charity has been nothing short or amazing. You Have worded with us to help raise awareness of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and helped us fund some of the best research to find a cure for this fatal disease.

Your staff has always been professional and hard working both leading up to the events and at the venue. You helped make it easy for us to plan events and fundraisers throughout the years.

From the bottom of our hearts we thank you for the support. You have given our son Michael and all the others a chance. 

With sincerest gratitude,

Theresa and Ron Capolongo

Dear Ms. Addivinola:

                I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude for your assistance with my family’s most recent event. Taylor Grace’s 1st birthday party was nothing short of perfect as usual!

                I am most grateful for the support and guidance you have offered me since we first met in 2006. As Parent Guild President for the Academy of St. Dorothy elementary school, as well as an office manager for a local healthcare facility, you have been by my side, helping me to shine! Whether it be a fashion show, a dinner dance fundraiser or a retirement party, I have never looked any further then your doorstep.

Knowing the excellence in service that is the Grand Oaks, the Grand Plaza and the Vanderbilt at South Beach, my family has also enjoyed many celebrations: from christenings to graduation parties to Sweet 16s and just two years ago, a wedding celebration for my daughter and son in law. You were right there, helping to make their dream come true!

                I truly believe it is your passion to help bring happiness to your clients’ events, and I have witnessed you do this many times. I look forward to working with you for many more years to come.

Best regards,

Jacqueline Vuono
