Renters are required to provide $1,000,000 liability coverage naming The Mateel Community Center as additionally insured.
You may be able to have beer and wine served at your event with a request. The MCC retains first right of refusal to run the bar and may deny permission to serve alcohol if it is deemed appropriate to do.
If the MCC does not choose to serve alcohol at your event then you may serve alcohol with the understanding that a LOCAL non-profit organization runs and receives the proceeds from the bar. A permit from the ABC is required:
DEPARTMENT OF ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE CONTROL 1105 6th Street #C, Eureka, CA 95502 - 707-445-7229
Whether you are serving a full meal or simple snacks and refreshments, this is important! You may need assistance. Many community non-profit organizations raise money by hosting kitchens at events. Ask for suggestions.
In addition to your hall rental fee, a clean-up fee will be assessed as follows:
- $250 for 'For-Profit' events
- $150 for 'Non-Profit' events
- $100 for low impact events such as workshops and classes
