Special Events

Your special event needs an inviting and inspiring space. A fresh surrounding offers new and fresh ideas. Your outcomes matter; where you hold your event should matter, too. When you hold your Special Event at the Sanctuary, you are providing much needed revenue for Community Matters. Your event builds up your group and staff while also building up the Lower Price Hill Community!

“As the Community Events Coordinator for Price Hill Will, a nonprofit community development corporation serving the neighborhoods of Lower, East and West Price Hill, we chose to use The Sanctuary as our venue for our annual fundraiser in February 2017. Our experience with The Sanctuary was excellent not only because the space is breathtakingly beautiful, but also because the venue facilitator, Stella, is incredibly hands-on. She was unbelievably helpful during all of the planning stages; pre-event, during and post-event. She truly helped us through it all.


During the event and the following few weeks, we received so many compliments on our venue choice. Our guests felt very safe parking and walking in the neighborhood, they enjoyed the ample amount of space The Sanctuary provided, and they enjoyed exploring a new part of Price Hill that they were not formerly familiar with. Our caterer, band, and volunteers also enjoyed the spacious venue. The Sanctuary’s kitchen is fully functional, and the band and volunteers had plenty of room to relax when they were not needed during the event. Thank you for such a pleasant experience. We plan to use the venue again next year!”
