Review by David K.

Private PartyReviewed on November 30, 2019From Taylorsville, NC

Lefford was fantastic to work with, from original bid, quick responses, questions and answers, everything. Right away, even though there were several excellent bids, I knew that Mr. Lefford Fate was THE man for the job. In planning a five year anniversary reunion for cast and crew of a military play I had directed, I wanted him as keynote speaker for a dinner program that would also include patriotic skits and Lefford portraying one of the characters in the play. He had a thorough survey for me to complete, so he could plan the best presentation that fit perfectly. With the venue hitches that I tried to foresee but did not, nothing kept him from succeeding.

Lefford Fate:

David and the Defiance crew were exceptional. It was a wonderful event and I truly enjoyed myself. The only problem is now I want to be a Thespian!!!! All kidding aside this was a professional event honoring military and veterans. They did an amazing job and I look forward to working with David and Denise in the future. I have already but the 10-year reunion on my calendar.

Lefford Fate:

Thank you for this awesome opportunity. This was a group of American Airmen who were extremely professional. I feel I received more than I gave. I look forward to serving you in the future.
