“The Winspire group was incredibly accommodating to several unique requests.  They fulfilled all their stated obligations superbly. The people at the Fairmont Hotels were seemingly very happy to have the accommodations booked through Winspire and honored all bookings with top of the line rooms. Could not have been happier.
Had to change the trip at the last minute due to the hurricane and no problem at all.”
Frank Walker, M.D.

 “Many analysts would advise against impulse buying of a travel/holiday purchase at our annual scholarship fund raiser, especially if the package is offered by an out of town company that you never heard of.  That being said, I was convinced that Sharon and I needed to make another trip to NYC.  We made our first trip to the Big Apple just a ‘few’ years earlier to celebrate her 40th birthday.  Then when I turned 60, I was able to escape an expensive local celebration by offering to take her to some plays and visit a friend in Brooklyn.  So having more faith in my pals at CMS and wanting to splurge with a purpose, we took the plunge and bought a Winspire package. They helped us make the long weekend very memorable, even helping by scoring another ticket for our friend to enjoy “An American in Paris” with us.  The hotel we stayed in was midway between TimesSquare and Central Park.  It was a magical trip which made me look forward to another impulsive buy, this time being more confident that there is wisdom when you partner with the right people.”

“We were looking for an excuse for a girls’ weekend to NYC, and the Winspire auction trip was perfect!!”  Kelly Johnson
