Thank you for creating the perfect evening for the Block and Hargrave families. Pam had the wedding she had dreamed of and you had everything to do with it. Sam and Pam were both ‘relaxed’ throughout the evening. I know they loved the carved Ice luge Spamtini bar—a wonderful and fun ‘Nazli’ creation!
Rafati’s delicious appetizers and buffet were raved about all night, delicious and unique—the foodies in the house loved everything especially the polenta dish and the salmon. We ladies all moaned over the caramel and chocolate river, it was a decadent and yummy delight!
You and your staff were total professionals throughout the evening, very much appreciated by Steve and I.
We will recommend the Tiffany Center for any event and you, of course, will always be be at the top of our list.

I am writing on behalf of the Iranian Student Association of Portland (ISAP). We had a very successful event on Saturday night and this wouldn’t have been possible without your significant help and support. We had the pleasure of doing business with you and I personally hope that we haven’t bothered you much with our amateur level of business interaction. We know that Portland State University has strict regulations and policies and we do appreciate your flexibility and patience with all this.
Without the slightest exaggeration, the venue, the setting, the food and the staff were outstanding. You helped us hold our heads high in front of the community in our first Nowrouz event and we are thankful for it.
Please send our deepest regards to lovely Nazli, Lee, Jessie, Brian and all the other staff members we had the pleasure to work with. We are looking forward to work with you in future if you are still interested in working with us!

Best day of my life!

…Rafati’s catered the hors d’oeuvres and served dinner. They had a great selection to choose from and we picked some winners. The food served that night is our new standard for what we want and expect for future Sabin auctions.
Rafati’s Catering does not shy away from a party. Their confidence, professionalism, and attitude made us feel as if our auction would come off without a hitch and it did. They were able to deal with last moment changes in details, such as additional guests for dinner, and were able to give us clear sound advice when we needed it, and we needed it! They were also very into making it a fun event and approached the whole affair as a personal favorite of theirs. No one ever seemed fatigued by too many questions or over it….only always, always, always into it!
From a standpoint of someone who has never thrown a party for 380 people who all want to eat, drink, and have a good time, I was a little overwhelmed by all the details that were involved but Nazli, Shannon, and Georgia made sure we had all the details, big and small, locked down.

Conor and I would like to thank you for everything you did for us to make our wedding such a special event! You were so easy, accommodating and wonderful to work with while planning. On our wedding day you and your staff made us feel like royalty. You were, magically, always there whenever I had any sort of question and made sure that everything went off without a hitch, We REALLY appreciate everything you have done for us!
- Conor and Gabi Kilkenny – Bride and Groom
The event was grand and the gala was a great success! We made more scholarship money than expected and our guest of honor, Deborah Evind, was touched deeply by our efforts. We could not have accomplished this without you and your staff. Everyone I came in contact with was helpful and professional and the room was set-up exactly as specified. Please let your team know how much we value their hard work. I especially appreciate your understanding of our late request for the additional meals – I know that was a lot of last minute work for you.
So, it was great to work with you – since we were new to the gala fundraising business we were very lucky to work with an experienced professional like you.
