Boss Ice Arena Highlight

Boss Ice Arena Highlight

“The Civic Center ballroom was the perfect place for the event. Once set up with the lighting and special up lighting for the stage, it felt festive and warm-cozy at the same time. It was nice to be able to leave everything except guest check-in and the program up to your very professional staff. It allowed us to enjoy the event too.” -Black History Awards Dinner
