"On behalf of the Evangelical Church of Westboro, MA I would like to enthusiastically thank you for the fundraising event at which you were featured at our Church this Spring.  The attendees unanimously rave about the education they received and the interest that was generated by your presentation.  The proceeds exceeded $1,700 - an amount that helps our Church greatly in extremely difficult financial times.  I do want to stress how struck we all were by the professionalism and authenticity you brought to us and we hope to have you back next year."
