                                                 How to Tailor your Events for the Non-Profit Sector

Non-profit event planning has taken a hard hit during the COVID 19 pandemic. Like all live, in person events, there are many changes that need to be made for these events to continue. These events are often the life line for many companies and causes to continue to produce funds for the work they do. Twin Cities NACE is hosting a panal discussion on non-profit events and how to produce them successfully. Join us in August for a focus on non-profit events with our featured panel of speakers:

Our historic event center sets just the right tone for formal, and more festive occasions, and our chef and on-site catering will have your guests raving about the food.

With onsite catering, we make your meal planning easy. Our chef is dedicated to preparing fresh, healthy and delicious meals. We use local vendors whenever we can and get weekly deliveries to ensure our produce and meat are as fresh as possible.
