Below is a small sampling of the many testimonials we have received.
"Thank you so much for taking such good care of us on our wedding day. You came through for us in so many ways, including finding the perfect last-minute substitution for Michael's tux (we couldn't have been happier) and giving us a map w/ directions to Jerry Grigory's (we were nervous wrecks!) Thank you for really going above & beyond the call of duty to make our day perfect! Your service is first-rate! We will never forget how kind you & Terri were to us both."

Dear Terri and Elly,
"Enclosed is a photo showing the tux we used from you all. You all do the "behind the scenes" work, but probably rarely see photos. I want to again personally thank you all for all of your help.
You were so helpful, friendly, and patient with me, each call I made. Thank you for helping make my daughter's wedding day memorable."

I will be sending you a picture as soon as I have the reprints back. Thank you again for all your assistance."
Luke & Cheryl Rice
"It has been a few months since I married in Maui wearing a rental from you. My marriage took place in Makena Cove on Thursday, February 6th, 2003. I just wanted to thank you for being so attentive and suggestive when helping us pick out the clothing in which we united our two lives.
Thanks and here are some pictures. Everything you see in the picture came from your store. Thanks for doing what you do Ellys!"
Ave and Joe Hart

Our appreciation is from the heart."

It is a special person who gives from the heart so that others can have their lives enriched by the arts. And you are such a person! Thank you so much for your tax-deductible gift of eleven pairs of tux shoes, 12 tux shirts, and miscellaneous Bridal Material.
You probably know that a large part of our funding comes from concerned people like you, and without your generosity, we simply could not continue to provide the programs that have built confidence and character in thousands of people in our community.
Again, thank you so much for your generosity and support."
