Rehearsal Dinner

Hi Laurie,

I wanted to let you know that everything went amazing last Friday! The food and service at our rehearsal dinner was spectacular! We couldn’t have asked for a better evening.

Kevin and I wanted to thank you for all of your help in organizing the event. You were wonderful to work with!

We look forward to many more evenings at Big Rock! Take care.

Sazerac Company / Rain Vodka Cocktail Party

Hi Jessica,

I wanted to write and thank you for the excellent service you and your staff provided for our Rain Vodka cocktail party last night.

The group was very impressed and really enjoyed the food. Definitely top-notch!

I know that there were some sample bottles left over at the end of the night.

If it’s okay with Vera, I would like for you to hang to them and put them up behind the bars, have the bartenders play with them and offer them to customers. If you sell through them, they can be re-ordered through National Wine and Spirits.

I will also help make them disappear, as I do frequent the restaurant / lounge a couple times a month with friends. It’s nice to be able to drink my products when I go out and offer them to friends.

Again, thank you for everything… I will definitely use your services in the future for other events.

Sharon, Jen and “Lucky” Miller


“Several weeks ago, I was contacted by Jason Peltier the event planner for The Big Rock Chophouse in Birmingham, Michigan.

They were catering a Mexican themed birthday party on Saturday, May 31 for 100 guests and asked if we would be interested in having a TPDR donkey attend the event. As this presented us with the opportunity for additional support for our rescued longears we decided to have a go at it. Besides, it sounded like fun!

Jen Engstrom and myself along with AKA Lucky Miller (standing in for TPDR Jeffrey) attended the party in Commerce Twp. Michigan and had a grand time. Lucky was a big hit, and made many new friends for donkeys everywhere. Most of the guests had no idea that there was a need for a donkey rescue, or that such organizations even existed.

Jason and the crew from Big Rock Chophouse were a pleasure to work with.They took excellent care of Jen and myself—the food was great!

They frequently asked if there was anything we needed, or if they could bring Lucky some water. They even escorted us safely to and from our trailer. What nice people to work with.

Thanks Jason!”
