“Julian, myself and our entire staff cannot possibly thank you enough for your recommendation and for the Institute for Family-Owned Business Board’s decision to honor us with the Shep Lee Award!  We were absolutely shocked, humbled and delighted all at once.  The awards dinner was truly wonderful to sit amongst such amazing entrepreneurs and family business owners.  We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and are ever grateful for the inspiration and validation to continue working harder than ever  to give back to our community!”
- Roxi Suger, Owner, Angelrox
