"Amazing Venue!"

Illuminate venue is truly one of a kind! The staff there are so friendly and helpful. Micheal, the manager, always made himself available to help and answer any questions. He’s just an amazing person that really cared! When I needed something he was on it! If you are looking to book this venue the staff alone is why you should just go ahead and book it. People can make or break an event.

"Bar Mitzvah"

If the perfect venue exists, Illuminate is it. The space, the light wall, the staff — every detail of our celebration was attended too. Even the restrooms were designed with a special occasion in mind. In addition to being a beautiful place to host a special event you get the added bonus of knowing you’re giving back to children and families.

"Perfect Celebration Location"

Illuminate was the perfect choice for our celebration. The venue space met our every need. It is a beautiful space down to the tiniest detail. The fact that choosing this venue comes with the knowledge that you are supporting children with developmental disabilities, and those who have experienced the trauma of abuse and neglect makes it even more perfect and unique.
