What makes Legacy Stables and Events the perfect place to host your company parties? We have a lot of answers to that question, but don’t take our word for it. Here Rose Ann Halages shares her experiences with a recent event at our property.
Rose Ann, human resources director for Archer Advanced Rubber Components, located in Winston-Salem, NC, has worked alongside her husband for almost 30 years building up their company. She’s organized numerous activities, training events, employee appreciation dinners and holiday parties. For the past two years Archer has held its office holiday party at Legacy Stables and Events, and had such a great experience they’re coming back again in 2023.
What was the reason you chose Legacy Stables and Events for your holiday parties?
To be honest, the first time we ended up at Legacy Stables and Events through a recommendation from our event planner. We always have our holiday party the second weekend in December, and the location we had used before COVID was booked for that date in 2021. We had such a great experience that I knew we would definitely be going back to Legacy Stables and Events for all our future parties.
How did Legacy Stables and Events help with your party planning?
What impressed me most was the level of customer service. We worked with Sondra Warren to plan our event, and she was just extremely helpful. In the past at other venues, I’ve had to coordinate all of the decorating and entertainment, but Sondra had all of that already put together for us. In both 2021 and 2022 we had casino night events for our holiday parties, and Sondra was so helpful in coordinating all of the equipment and supplies. She would give us options to choose from and then put it all together for us. And Legacy Stables and Events is such a beautiful venue, I didn’t need to go out to buy anything to add to the décor.
What are some of the benefits to hosting an event at Legacy Stables and Events?
For our company, from a practical standpoint, the location itself is ideal. We have a lot of employees who commute in from Kernersville and Lexington and all parts of the Triad. Legacy Stables and Events is centrally located, making it a convenient location for everyone who attends.
I also love the venue itself. It is so spacious and new that it makes the perfect backdrop for any type of party or event. The food was wonderful and there were plenty of staff on hand to help, all of our guests had a great time.
What advice can you give to others who are planning events for the upcoming year?
For holiday parties, I recommend reserving the date at your location in January or February. The earlier you get started, the better the chances are you’ll get the date you want. If you wait and start planning in the summer the options are limited. If you know where you want to have your party, like we do, the smart thing is to get it on the books. That way I can be sure we’ll be hosting our office party at Legacy Stables and Events again in 2023.
