“A belated note of thanks to you and your crew for a wonderful job leading up to and on Saturday evening.  Everything went off without a hitch, and our guests said it was even better than last year!!
It was great to see so many familiar faces returning to work the event for a second year.  The continuity in your staff says alot about what a great place the Holiday Inn must be to work, and what a great team you all are.  Thank you again.“

"I worked with Toni 8 years ago for my son's Bar Mitzvah, which was an incredible event. Now, I work with Toni regularly through my job at the Skokie Chamber. She is always professional and friendly, and goes above and beyond for her customers. I highly recommend working with Toni Mengarelli at the Holiday Inn!"
