leadership workshop for alumni office

I work for the alumni relations office, and we are looking to have a Leadership Workshop in order to choose our next board members and president for the Alumni Club (a volunteer-run organization). We are hoping to use your lovely home as a perfect location for this off-site/team building event. We will provide lunch for the group and facilitate the workshop and breakout sessions. The purpose is to have ice-breakers, a brainstorming session, and then a vote for the next leadership. We will end the day with a congratulatory cocktail.

birthday cocktail party

I was wondering if your space would be available to use for a 30th birthday party on the 27th from 7:30 pm - 11:30 pm. I am not anticipating having more than 30 people in attendance for appetizers, cocktails, and dessert. I would be interested in finding out what is available in the space or what we would need to bring (tables to lay out food/drinks, seating capacity, speakers to play background music). Also, is there anyway to see the space i person? I live in the city so if there is an opportunity to view before the day of the event, that would be really helpful.
