    American Leak Detection Awards Gala

    The Bullock Texas State History Museum was simply the perfect venue for our event. Lily Alpern is a fantastic host and the most knowledgeable resource for our every need.

    Briana Lacy-King from Rosemary's Catering did a fantastic job planning, preparing and serving our five course sit down meal. Everyone raved about the food.

    I highly recommend this venue and these most capable folks.
    Best regards,
