Oakland County Planning & Economic Development Annual Meeting


Thank you very much for helping us put on our most well received annual meeting anyone can remember. Everyone loved the location and the facilities and the food was absolutely perfect. I could not believe how nice, helpful and accommodating the servers were throughout the event. Thank you again for making everything so nice and easy. I really do look forward to having future events at the Reserve.

I also wanted to ask if you have had a chance to look at weather or not we have a balance due. If I can get an invoice by tomorrow I can have a check cut and out to you by Monday.

Thank you so much and look forward to hearing from you.

Bridal Shower


Just wanted to send you a short note to let you know how pleased i was with my daughter’s bridal shower on sat. Sept. 13. Besides dealing with monsoon weather and traffic everybody enjoyed themselves immensely. The valet guys were fabulous in helping everyone with their gifts and getting them to the door with as little discomfort as possible. They also helped us load the cars with the gifts after the shower was over.

Mitchell and the waitstafff were fabulous. The service as well as the food was totally outstanding!!! I enjoyed myself because i knew everybody was doing their job!!

Please let your staff know that everything was greatly appreciated and you will probably be seeing some of us in the near future for other events.

Thank you again,

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!”
