“We worked with API for our Feasibility Study and Campaign. Don and Terry Fairholm were very professional and knowledgeable when working with us and when reporting to our Steering Committee and Board of Trustees. We worked well together during the campaign process and I feel that they listened to us and partnered with us throughout, with the shared goal of being successful.”
