For fundraisers big to small, the Venue features a variety of spaces and configurations to create the perfect set-up.

For large gatherings, we recommend the Grand Hall for table seating or standing receptions, which also includes a balcony for extra capacity. Cool, chic and elevated for entertaining, the serves as an upscale middle-ground for a cocktail hour and is included with a Grand Hall reservation.

For a more intimate affair, our roomy Gallery Space impresses with its contemporary design and multimedia capabilities, perfect for sharing your nonprofit’s story visually.

Event hosts often use our Green Room to prepare for their event, switch attire or just to regroup and recharge. Funky and fun yet upscale and welcoming, the Lobby is where you’ll welcome your guests with registration tables, and maybe games, drinks, appetizers and more; or use this space for program intermissions. The lobby’s beautiful natural light and an open, airy feel puts guests at ease. Ample parking is available directly across the street in a private lot, and coat check is available.


Food and drink services are provided on site for your convenience. Whether you’re entertaining the idea of a breakfast, brunch, lunch, appetizers or dinner, our coordination team makes it easy to customize the cuisine to match your budget and event theme.
