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.

backyard wedding

i am getting married on the 3rd. I have been looking for a backyard to rent for my event as i want an outdoor wedding. Would your place be available for my date? And would the set up time need to be included in the time of the rental? as cocktail hour would probably start at 5:30pm, but we would need a few hours to get everything set up.

non profit fundraiser with cocktails

I am looking to throw a fundraiser for a non profit here. I plan on hosting 50-60 people for cocktails and appetizers after work on the 20th. I have a chef who will be making appetizers and we will be providing booze. Does that sound like a good fit for your space? Kitchen, bar and hangout space, is really all I need and I see you have it all. Also, is there a speaker system for playing music?
