John, Julie, Max & Team: We just wanted to say again, thank you all so much for all you did to make the Treme fundraiser such an incredible success. People are still going on about the food, especially the shrimp and grits! I don’t think I could have asked for more and I can’t wait to work with you again. You’re the best!
