Perfect Anniversary celebration venue, An Eventective User from Longwood, Florida

We had our 50th anniversary dinner at the Barnes--coordinator was great as was the catering person. Dinner was lovely and enjoyed by all. Our guests were allowed to view the artwork in the museum before the dinner which was appreciated by all attending. Both coordinators (catering and venue) were most helpful.
