We are so thankful and happy that our building is a spot where so many wonderful and everlasting memories will be made. If you decide to book with us, we will do our best to make your dream event come true. We believe in straight forward and clear communication with our clients. We understand that planning an event can be stressful, and our goal is to help relieve some of that stress and put everyone at ease. Rest assured that kindness and attention to detail are important to us. We cannot wait to help plan and host your special event!  

When you refer 5 paying clients to Hale Street Center, you will receive a $250 Amazon Gift Card. When you refer an additional 5 paying clients (10 total) to Hale Street Center, you will receive a fully catered party/event at our venue for up to 50 people. WOW!!!

When you refer someone to us, have the person you are sending give us your name (and we have somewhere on our intake data sheets for them to give us this information as well). The referred client must give us your name for it to be counted. Once you have referred the 10 paying clients to us, the program will reset and you can start over! Win, win!!!!
