Thank You Note from Positive Directions & Jones Gallery“I just want to extend a huge THANK YOU to you both, as well as your staff, for Friday.

—R Executive Director, Positive Directions & Jones Gallery (October 13, 2014)

Thank You Note from KHS“Thanks to 101.3 Today’s KFDI and The Cotillion, our second annual All for the Paws concert was a huge success. On August 10, more than 1000 people supported KHS by watching American Idol winner and renowned country music star Scotty McCreery put on an amazing show. Long time animal advocate Bobby Bones performed with his band The Raging Idiots to a sold out Cotillion crowd on September 5, with all proceeds benefitting KHS.”
—Kansas Humane Society (September 5, 2014)

“Good Morning Richard, Everything went fine man. I really loved the facilities and Ryan was really helpful and accommodating. We ended up breaking even which was expected because Conjunto Amanecer isn’t a big-time group such as Huracanes or Rieleros are. They usually pull the big crowds. I wanted to test the Wichita market on a Saturday and I think it’s going to work. I look forward to working with you and booking more events at The Cotillion. I appreciate the hospitality and all you guys did on your end to ensure we were successful.”
—D (September 6, 2013)

“Richard, Thank you, Catherine and your entire staff. So much of the success was due to your efforts and I appreciated your patience with some of our missteps. The bands, the crowd, and the ACS were all extremely pleased with the event and we couldn’t have had it in a better venue. Thank you again and I hope we do another event with you in the future. ”
—Jason Schlitz (August 22, 2009)

“I would like to thank you for being the host sponsor of our February Destination Exchange event. You all did a GREAT job!

“It’s the best show Fox-Vliet has ever had!’ I can’t tell you how many times we heard this statement made by customers, Fox-Viliet salesmen and manufacturers’ representatives during the two day show. One of the most important features, we think, was the willingness with which all The Cotillion employees responded to the many demands made on them. Please thank everyone of them for us!”

“This is a note of appreciation for the excellent cooperation we received from all the members of your staff and yourself at our recent meeting at The Cotillion… The Cotillion furnished an excellent setting and atmosphere for our meeting. Two specific benefits which resulted from use of The Cotillion were one, a change of atmosphere, and second, having all our people away from the hotel and at a specific meeting location. It relieved the problem of interruptions and helped to keep people’s attention throughout the program… I will be happy at any time to express our feelings to other interested parties should you desire to refer them.”
