‘Just wanted to say thanks again for the invite to last night’s show.  An awful lot of energy was clearly put into the evening and I hope it paid off for you.  The ‘well-dressed’ crowd seemed to have a great time!  I also wanted to thank you for being such a great host.  It was so nice seeing you float around and care for everyone and it certainly made us feel very welcome.  Well done you.’
