At Desert Foothills, we have had the great privilege of working with many Destination Management Companies, corporate clients, meeting planners, and individuals to organize and host their events. We would like to share a few of the kind words and responses we have received over the years from our clientele.

Corporate Clients

Hi Ladies! I’m telling you we have had so many compliments about the party….and honestly a hesitation to go anywhere else next year. I’ve included some compliments below, but I wanted to share the love with you and your team. Without you guys we couldn’t have pulled it off. Thank you soooooo much!
Kelly Head – Sprouts

Would you be willing to work with us again? We got such rave reviews we would like to do our event there next year. Thanks Kim! You and your entire staff were nothing but fabulous to work with! Everyone single person was awesome!
Cathy Sherwin – Care Fund

THANK YOU SO MUCH KIM!! You and your team were so wonderful to work with. I couldn’t have been happier with the way everything turned out. The client was happy, the guests had a great time and you definitely made my job easy! Thank you again for EVERYTHING!!
Sarah Gabel – Regal Meetings and Events

I just wanted to thank you for all of your work on our event Friday night. The feedback we received from team members was phenomenal!! They loved everything – music, food, and the activities! Our Divisional Vice President said the meal was one of her top 5 ever. Really amazing response to the event, so thank you very much!!

Destination Management Companies

We have held numerous, successful events at Desert Foothills and it remains to be AZA Events and our clients’ absolutely favorite corporate venue in the Valley. With a professional and seasoned sales and operational team, it is assuring to know we consistently receive outstanding and exceptional service from the initial proposal stage, to pre-planning all the way through on-site management. They continually leave guests with a last memory of their time in Arizona and a true authentic experience they could never do on their own. First impressions are always the most important; its comforting to know we continually get a team that is flexible and willing to do whatever it takes; the true meaning of a valued partnership; exceptional culinary; a facility that is always well manicured; accommodating service staff and not to mention the views are spectacular.

The greatest compliment that we hear from our clients is that once they are at Desert Foothills they don’t want to leave!!! Again, please accept our thanks for your years of dedication.
Lori James – AZA Events, Inc.

I have been contracting incentive and corporate events in Arizona for over 20 years. Desert Foothills Cookout has consistently performed as a quality venue with true Arizona style. Our recent event with over 700 guests was no exception. The client commented at the end of night that “the food was great, the bands were so fun and the whole experience was exceptional!” Kim Culver and Joanie Alire are true professional event planners that know how to be proactive and exceed the expectations of their clients. Their suggestions on how to make the event “extra special” were right on target. The whole team at DFCO did a great job. Thank you!
Dale Hahne – Circa AZ.

I have booked many corporate events at Desert Foothill Cookouts over the last 15 years and never have I found two planners, Kim and Joanie, to be more enthusiastic, more flexible, and more creative in their ability to accommodate the variety of services that our company has requested from them.

They are an Event Planner’s Dream!

They are very easy to work with, always happy to adapt our ideas and concepts, and they remain extremely professional and customer-service oriented throughout the entire planning process. Their natural poise and friendly “can do” attitudes make them a real asset to any theme event at Desert Foothills Cookout, which is an amazing facility for any type of corporate event, be it a breakfast in the desert, a lunch location after one of our Orienteering or Amazing Races navigating through the desert, or a dinner event under the stars.
