Keeping the tradition of Customer Service Excellence alive
“If someone had told me that I would start my own business when I turned fifty I would have told them that they were crazy!” Striking the balance between being a wife and mother and having two full time careers has its challenges, but has proven to be very fulfilling. I have been in the business of event planning for the past 14 years, so I have gotten accustomed to shifting gears at a moment’s notice to meet the needs of my customers.
The inspiration for professional perfection is driven by the spirit of my parents, who were business owners themselves. As owners of Frisco Press Printers of Blue Bell, Pennsylvania, my parents instilled a strong work ethic in all of their children. I was able to see first-hand how hard work and exemplary service is the key to customer satisfaction and loyalty. I can still see my parents working side by side, seven days a week to meet their production deadlines. Being part of that environment has taught me valuable lessons about the responsibilities of being a business owner. I named my business 513 Entertainment in their memory. 513 was “their lucky number” and I’m hoping it will bring that same luck to my business.
513 Entertainment provides top notch entertainment for all occasions. We offer musical talent including live bands, disc jockey services, solo performers, acoustic performers and harpists. Our entertainers offer a wide variety of genres and performance styles.
513 Entertainment offers a wide variety of performance professionals capable of transforming your social gathering into a delightful experience for guests of any age. My company enlists the talent of artists such as The Magical Illusions of Kyle and Kelly of Pottstown – strolling or stationary magicians, henna and glitter tattoo artists, face painters, caricature artists, costumed stilt walkers, balloon twisters, 14th generation palm and hair readers, baby bump artists and costumed angel and tarot card readers .

Additionally, in the summer of 2011, I had the pleasure of providing staffing for The Variety Club of Philadelphia/Campisi Financial annual fundraiser.
