Kathy Costello

Director of Catering Sales

Sales Full Service Catering

What other career allows you to be part of the most important celebrations in people’s lives?  Over the course of my 21 years with Russo’s, IΓ’ve had the privilege and honor of planning and coordinating hundreds no, actually thousands of events, including weddings receptions, non-profit fund raisers, corporate gatherings and social celebrations.  My absolute favorite thing is to see these plans I’ve captured on paper come to life!

When I’m not in the midst of an event, I’m likely to be hanging out with any or all of our six grandkids, checking out local restaurants with my husband Don, or at a Cardinal’s game, keeping score.

Favorite Menu Item:

Smoked Tomato Bisque, BLT Rigatoni and cake trimmings, especially chocolate chip, on the bakery's cake-baking day
