"Janet Parshall did awesome! We raised more funds than we ever have and the feedback as been incredible."
"Talk-show host and commentator Janet Parshall hit a home run at our Wheaton Christian Grammar School fundraiser. Her eloquent message and personal warmth encouraged our school families greatly, and completely resonated with our giving appeal for the evening. And she didn't let her flight cancellation due to Hurricane Sandy stop her from fulfilling her commitment! She pivoted quickly and drove to our event, for which we were most grateful. It is our great pleasure to highly recommend Janet Parshall."
