“Working with Barbara Kaplan has always been a great pleasure. I put her on a short list of three people, on Long Island, who can fill a room with 500 people or more because she’s running the event. We have participated in the Over 50 Fair and the All Kids Fair on multiple occasions for each, to date, and we’ve always been impressed with how well each event has been run from top to bottom. We enjoy doing business with Barbara, and we consider her events to be amongst the best in which we participate.”

“Barbara and her team did a fantastic job organizing and making the 'Over 50 Fair' a huge success! We had a wonderful opportunity to showcase our community and speak with so many people who were interested in what we have to offer. Her hard work and dedication to what she does truly showed in how smoothly everything went from set up to tear down and all in between.
