On behalf of the ACES Education Foundation Board members, the Gala committee and our friends, we would like to thank you for a lovely night on March 22, particularly with threats of postponing due to weather. You were especially considerate and generous in offering us the option of another evening in April.
Parking issues were not raised as we thought they might be with snow covered parking areas, and the room set up, though, a concern due to ever increasing registrations, was fine. Of course as you can imagine having an increase in the number of guests was a wonderful problem for us to manage.
And finally the food, the presentation, and your very accommodating staff, contributed to a lovely evening. We should have used the second bar, however, everyone, including your bar tenders, was patient.
Ken, Vanessa, and the staff setting up the room were so helpful and pleasant, it is obvious they have extensive experience with such events.
Thank you again,
Cheryl S. Saloom, Gala Co-Chair
Thank you so much for such a great event! We’ve been receiving feedback since last week and everything has been positive. Our attendees complimented the gorgeous venue along with the delicious food! I am so happy that we chose your venue for our event, the service, location, atmosphere was perfect and we were extremely pleased with the night overall. A big win and all thanks to Vanessa, Tony, Scott & the rest of the WoodWinds staff. I will certainly keep you in mind for the next event and will be sure to pass the word around to my colleagues.
Until next time "J”

Everything turned out great!! The staff (Scott and Randy) were awesome and so accommodating with last minute changes. The food was delicious and we appreciated the packed desserts which the staff enjoyed the following day. Thank you so much, It was a pleasure working with all of you at Woodwinds!! We will definitely keep you in mind for our next event.
Thank you and your team for ensuring that our ACES Education Foundation Gala was a success. You and your team did an outstanding job in making sure that everything ran smoothly- even accommodating a last-minute request for a gluten-free meal. It was a pleasure holding our event at Woodwind's. We hope we can work together again.
It was a terrific event. I enjoyed working with Scott, and the food was delicious! I especially appreciated how accommodating all of your staff were when our guest of honor experienced a death in her family and we almost needed to postpone. Everyone I spoke to was so thoughtful and generous. I would gladly recommend Woodwinds to others.

On Thursday, April 7th, 2016, St. Martin de Porres Academy celebrated its 11th Annual Spring Fling! 390 people gathered to celebrate the successes of the Academy’s students, to honor Town Fair Tire, and affirm the power of education and opportunity to break the cycle of generational poverty. A special thanks to WoodWinds and their staff for their tremendous hospitality, which was instrumental to making the evening an incredible one of food, fellowship, and philanthropy!
I want to thank you for your dedication from start to finish in making this event so memorable for our Pastors and our church. It was the first time we had an event here and we really loved it. The service and the food was wonderful.
Thank you again and have a blessed day!

Thanks to Scott and Sarah for all of your help with our "Client Appreciation Event"! Every detail was covered and I really felt like you all “had my back”
Sarah, thank you for putting up with all my changes and ideas! All of our client responses for the evening were very positive.
Job well done – as usual!
Thank you once again for your incredible customer service and support of the CFMS Fund. The fundraiser was a success raising $80,000 to help those with cystic fibrosis and multiple sclerosis.
We look forward to working together in 2015 too!
Thank you for your support of our fourth annual “Help Our People Event. Because of your support we were able to bring an abundance of food to each of the food pantries we targeted with included the Branford Community Dining Room, The Orange Community Center, Inspirica in Stamford, The Bridgeport Rescue Mission, The Loaves & Fishes at St. Paul, St. James Church in New Haven, The Emmanuel Baptist Church food pantry in New Haven, The Community Center Pantry in Wallingford, The Emergency Human Services in Woodbridge, the Hamden Food Bank as well as Makela Pantry in West Haven. Each food pantry was overwhelmed and very grateful for the amount of food that we were able to offer.
On behalf of the Guilford Saving’s Bank’s Corporators, Trustees, and Officers, thank you for making our Corporators’ Dinner on January 23, 2014 such an enjoyable event.
As always, GSB received many compliments about the WoodWinds’ appetizers, good food and excellent service! Your assistance in helping me organize the event and your attention to detail was great appreciated. Even at the last minute, where GSB requested the Dinner be rescheduled due to pending snowstorm, the WoodWinds graciously accommodated our request.
Please extend my sincerest thanks to Sarah, also. Not only did she provide valuable assistance with our Corporators’ Dinner event, but she also answered all our questions and provided great ideas for the Bank’s Retirement Party for our CEO…both events scheduled for the same week!
I enjoyed working with you and your team. Keep up the good work!
Janet L. Ciszek
Thank you so much for providing the junior class of Guilford High School with your beautiful venue for our first off campus junior prom. It was a grand success and all the students loved it. The students always enjoyed the food selection. We had an amazing time and we cannot thank you enough!
