Golf tournaments are popular at country clubs, for fundraisers, and for corporate morale parties. After the tournament, there's often an award program with gifts for the winning foursome, and a gag gift for the losing team. When GSE Construction a Livermore, California based company had their tournament at Wente Vineyards, our comedian served as emcee, to the delight and laughter from all the participants. He added that humorous touch for the late afternoon festivities. Here's our comedian, Dave Burleigh, who also performs on the Craig Ferguson Show.
Many hotels offer V.I.P. events as a method of introducing their hotel for potential business, and as a way of "thanking thier customers" for their loyalty. For a holiday/Christmas showcase at the San Ramon Marriott, in San Ramon, California, this hotel served gourmet appetizers, entres, and desserts, all in their holiday decorated main ballroom. Our Company added to their classy event by providing a Swing and Jazz duo, with the pianist playing on their baby grand piano.
