Food & Desserts:
We offer food and dessert packages that feature assorted appetizers such as chicken fingers, empanadas and egg rolls. We then add desserts such as éclairs, cookies, mini cupcakes, cream puffs, cinnamon rolls and brownies. These are then served from a buffet presentation that is refreshed throughout the evening. Presentation includes disposable dinnerware such as plates and napkins.
Our in-house disc jockeys will play the clean versions of the music you select. A meeting will be set up prior to the event for the school committee to meet with the DJ to review the evening’s selections. We offer cordless microphones for the schools announcements by the students and teachers. We have state of the art LED lighting and lasers built into each ballroom.
Our ballrooms feature built in video projection systems that allow you to play school produced slide-shows. These systems also allow our Disc Jockeys to play music videos from some of the artists selected on your play lists. Video projection is only available when using our in-house Disc Jockeys.
Club Level Lighting:
Our ballrooms also feature complete club level lighting systems that are controlled by our Disc Jockey. These lighting systems create a fun and energy filled environment for hosting your party. We have state of the art LED lighting and lasers built into each ballroom.
Our staff can transform our facility into many different themed atmospheres. From Royal Galas to Hollywood movie sets, we can create the ultimate themed party! Prices for additional decoration services are quoted upon request. Existing props are offered for use at no additional cost to your package. Think of The Event Factory as the ultimate movie sound-stage where any theme can be brought to life!
In this day and age of instant everything, we offer photography packages that allow the students to take home a portrait print the night of the event! No longer do they need to order their prints and wait weeks for their delivery. Our 5x7 party favor prints come with a receipt that states the student can scan and reprint the picture. We also offer the option to purchase a DVD that contains four (4) images taken that night. These images may all be printed by the student after the event. Both packages provide the student with their picture to take home at the end of the party!!! Prints are created using high quality dye-sub technology.
Photography Payment Options:
The school can choose to include one party favor print to each guest as part of their ticket price. With this option, the student would receive one 5x7 party favor to take home that night as part of the amount that they paid for the event ticket. They can still choose to upgrade and pay on their own for a DVD containing four pictures.
The other option is for the school to allow us to provide this service and the student has the option of purchasing their picture and DVD that night.
In either case, The Event Factory will provide the school with promotional material that explains the students purchase options.
Pricing and Payment Schedules:
Homecoming pricing ranges from $15.00 to $25.00 per guest.
Prom pricing ranges from $20.00 to $35.00 per guest.
These prices above include all the services listed above except for the Photography services. A final price quote is issued to each school upon request and is based on the date and the number of event hours. Saturday nights carry a minimum rental fee for each ballroom. We try to work with schools to meet their budgets whenever possible.
Party favor prints pre-paid by the school add $5.00 per guest.
The pricing we charge to the students if they are purchasing a 5x7 print is $15.00 per print and we offer a package of two (2) 5x7 prints with a DVD containing four images for just $25.00! This is very popular because it gives the student the ability to go home with four images and print them in any size or share them with their friends.
The deposit required to secure the date is between $1,000.00 and $2,000.00. The balance is then due seven to 30 days prior to the event date. Details are provided with your official quote.
