She collaborated with The Sun Valley Center for the Arts on thematic direction and costume design and she was always respectful of our budget concerns. We work hard to create a unique experience for our guests and the performance and support from Cirque Berzerk was unique, captivating and flawless.``Christine Davis-Jeffers | Special Events Fundraising Manager SVCA
