(01/8/20 – Tarpon Springs) Cassie Thomas found her passion in life after a successful though uneventful banking career. Armed with a customer service and business background, Cassie has become an expert in wedding event sales and planning in her dream job as Event Director at Ace Golf, two family-owned golf clubs including Wentworth and Crescent Oaks Golf Clubs.
In just 3 years, Cassie has organized over 200 Wedding Events at the two popular EastLake-area Golf Clubs and at Carrollwood Country Club. “I chose Wentworth and Crescent Oaks because of their two very different, beautiful reception venues. Also, as local, family-owned businesses, I have a lot more latitude to be creative and provide exceptional service”, says Thomas.
Membership is not required to hold a wedding or event at either club, and the cost compares favorably with hotel and other venues. Wentworth offers a stately, upscale English Manor Clubhouse and Veranda. Crescent Oaks is a larger, Mediterranean style banquet facility with sweeping golf course views and a new outdoor event pavilion.
Cassie helps brides plan their weddings with her positive demeanor, creativity, and attention to detail. “I genuinely have a love for people, especially newly engaged couples. Building relationships and delivering unparalleled customer service in the events industry is what keeps me going”, says Cassie.
A true Floridian at heart, Cassie was born in Northern Kentucky and then moved to Florida in 2010. She loves walks on beaches with her fiancé Randy and loves her two adopted Pomeranians. Prior to joining Crescent Oaks, Cassie was a personal business banker for Wells Fargo Bank for six years. While working at Wells Fargo, Cassie helped hundreds to reach their financial goals. She now helps clients reach their event and wedding goals.
Those considering a wedding or other event are invited to meet with Cassie for a tour and to exchange ideas. She is at Crescent Oaks Golf Club at 3300 Crescent Oaks Boulevard in Tarpon Springs, off East Lake Road a mile north of Tarpon (Keystone) Avenue. Her phone number is 727 937-4653 x31.
