“Last night our event was amazing our mixer turned birthday party was a hit. Everyone loved the space and the ambiance. The entire staff was amazing. The older generation taught the younger generation how to do the funky four corners and the younger generation taught the older generation how to hustle. Our church will definitely be partnering with GVSU again. Again, thank you so much!!!!”
