Last Saturday was a magical evening filled with harmony and lyric that perfectly captured the spirit of Fraser. Thanks to your participation, we will be able to continue the expansion of Fraser Autism Services for Minnesota families in need. 

We raised $118,505 in our Fund-a-Need program. These funds are critical to helping Fraser continue to expand, building our vision that no one should have to travel more than 35 minutes or 35 miles to receive Fraser services.  
Our guests helped us raise nearly $80,000 in our silent and live auctions!  
In total, you helped us raise nearly $390,000 at the Fraser Annual Benefit - THANK YOU!  

Warm regards, 

Diane S. Cross

"Recently we approached Paul Peterson with a challenge to create a unique event to  re-engage the many segments of our alumni.   Paul took great care in listening and asking questions and investing all of his creativity, experience and connections into helping us create a unique concert that allowed us to create a vision and turn it into a reality.   Paul and his company Peterson Music and Events helped us create a transformative musical experience that has brought our alumni community together.  Paul is so professional, conscientious and thoughtful about his work and it shows in his ability to manage all aspects of our concert.  I would highly recommend Paul and his many quality associates for any event planning.

Dear Paul, 

     On behalf of the Southdale YMCA, I would like to extend a huge thank you. You were fabulous and you and Patty made all the difference in the world with regards to setting a positive, upbeat tone to the evening. Your unbelievable support in getting the benefit to be a success can not be over stated - you really were the "rock star" in pulling everything together. 

We are honored and privileged to have you on the Board.
Thanks for all you did and continue to do.

Edina Country Club

Thank you again for handling the entertainment for the 1st annual “Caddyshack” party at Edina Country Club.  Your band came highly recommended from several of our members and you did not disappoint.  You had the crowd going from the first song thru the last.  It was great to see even some of our more reserved members out on the dance floor having a great time.  You were able to keep people engaged and I was amazed at the sustained energy of the event.  I will also say that from a planning standpoint it was great to go to one place to procure the variety of musicians that you were able to provide.  From the pianist at dinner to the band to the keyboard player for the “after party” they all were extremely talented and very well received.  I continue to get great comments about the fun that was had by everyone that evening. 

 We will be in touch for next year’s event!
