2017 Non-Profit of the Year Award

We couldn’t have been more pleased with Extraordinary Ventures for the Chapel Hill Newcomer’s Dinner. The Great Hall looked beautiful and all the guests wondered why we hadn’t used your space for any earlier meetings. We shall definitely want to hold our large annual meeting there in April. You were so helpful, and your recommendation for our caterer was nothing short of genius!

Chapel Hill Newcomer's Club

We have enjoyed using Extraordinary Ventures for our annual conference for the last three years. It’s attractive and comfortable and offers plenty of free parking. The staff are available to help with all our needs. It is the perfect size venue for our event. The location and parking are convenient and the new AV system worked very well. We want to go ahead and book it for next year!
